European style district positioned centrally, with plenty of places to visit, including churches, museums, such as Orhan Pamuk's museum. There is absolutely wonderful roof top restaurant 360, with stunning panoramic views of the city. It turns into live DJ venue during nights.

cobbled streets, bars, stylish restaurants - this area is full of 20 and 30 somethings who make themselves highly visible on Friday and Saturday nights. Stay away if your only interest is the historical side of the city, and walk the streets during the day.

Don't just visit this area - stay at Beyoglu. It's a safe part of town with great views, great shops, great cafes, with so much to do within easy access of almost anywhere you'd want to visit by both tram & metro. Quaintest, cutest and most charming place in Istanbul, where you can escape the sometimes 'overwhelmingness' of the other... More

Beyoglu is a way cool neighbourhood, bustling with great cafés, bars and restaurants and also many smaller boutiques of artisan art and fashion. You can get yourself lost and still enjoy it as, at every turn, there is something new to see.

A place active with people at all times of the day. Plenty to see and do even if people watching is all you as interested in. Shopping for those who want it.

This is where the tram travells among the tourists. The scenery is fascinating. Don't miss to walk there and see the traditional shops. Take a walk through the Galata tower

To get the most out of this area, you need to book a "Tour of Jewish Istanbul". You will need to fax or email a copy of your passports to get access to the synagogues. The price of tour includes a small donation to the synagogues to all entrance. Security is very good! The old Jewish neighborhood is the home... More

Staying in Beyoglu

Neighborhood Profile
Beyoglu
Istanbul’s most famous street, pedestrianized Istiklal Caddesi (Independence Avenue), throbs day and night and offers a fantastic array of architectural sights, shops, treats, and throngs upon teeming throngs of people. At the avenue’s northeastern end is expansive Taksim Square, thought by many to be the very heart of the city, with many of Turkey’s most renowned restaurants and some of Europe’s most happening nightlife in close proximity. In striking contrast, Beyoglu’s less trafficked areas – such as the affluent Cihangir and the antiques district of Cukurcuma – exude Old World charm and provide contemplative calm and splendid diversion via an assortment of cozy cafes, attractive boutiques, and quiet lanes.
