Small shops intermingled with sellers of other produce. Many fascinating kinds of fish nicely displayed. The gills presented like flowers to show the freshness of the fish. And many restaurants at hand when your appetite has risen enough.

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
