Went here as part of a coach tour and stopped for photos. It is a boring bridge but a must do. The only fascination was the novelty of stepping onto 2 continents and being in Asia, a continent that I had never visited.

Well it's a bridge !! It connects The Asian Istanbul to the European Istanbul and at night it's has nice lighting , can go underneath by ferries or on top by Hop on/off buses or Taxi ! By the way , I noticed the bridge is so high even large commercial ships pass under it without problems !

This was nice to see but not as interesting as many of the other options. You can view it from the port easily.

Throughly enjoyed a boat trip which went along the bosphorus strait, showing off the houses, hotels and of course mosques along the bank. You also get to see a lot of boats and massive oil tankers go past and there's some great photo opportunities as you go right under the bridge, Went on a bus tour also which took us... More

The Bosphorus Bridge is wide and attaches the two continents but it is not a spectacular structure. It lights up a night which enhances its appeal but still not much to look at.

Best view from local ferry from European to Asian side. Stunning. Go to the top of the Intercontinental Hotel to enjoy view from a different vantage point.

The bridge straddles the East with the West - Asia with Europe. It is a great experience crossing it as you go from one continent to another.

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.
