Beyoğlu is a district which has the famous İstiklal Caddesi, part of Gümüşsuyu, Sıraselviler, Cihangir, Galata, Tepebaşı and Tarlabaşı. Each area was an old residential and commercial location of the, Greek, Italian, Armenian and Jewish communities.

A nice walk or a quick Metro ride to the attractions of Sultanemet but a different feeling neighborhood. Lots of nightlife if you want it, but also away from the hustle of the more touristed areas of Istanbul.

One of the main walking street in the old centre of Istanbul - a lot of shops, cafes and of course - tram! In the evening Beyoglu becomes the night heart of the capital - bars, pubs, clubs!

This is a nice and reasonably modern district of Istanbul. It holds Istikal Street and Taksim square in it's remit and also the famous Galata Tower. A cab to Beyoglu from the airport would be around 50TL

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.
