Vibrant and alive, this is probably the most beautiful district of the city with numerous shops, restaurants and pastry shops and of course hundreds of people passing by the Istiklal street.

Nice place to walk. There are lots of fine restaurants with local food, Turkish delights, stores and local markets. Very crowded, full of tourists, so I would be careful with your pockets and bags. You can hear different music instruments, watch people dancing or singing.

To start with, I wonder what tripadvisor means by Beyoğlu. Beyoğlu is more than just Taksim and its surroundings because it stretches from Dolmabahçe Sarayı to Kasımpaşa and from Cihangir to Karaköy. My personal experience tells me not to generalise as far as Beyoğlu is...More

Istanbul is full of fabulous neighborhoods and Beyoglu is right up there. Great for walking, shopping, eating (it is Istanbul after all!). We used various forms of public transportation in Istanbul: trams, buses, water taxis, ferries, subway. They go everywhere, inexpensive and you see the...More

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
