NO TRAM any more .
The old tramway is not any 1 of the most attractive parts of the shopping street.
Even the old tramhous is exit. If it comes back? Yes one's when nobody knows.

Great classic ride in Beyoglu district. Really iconic and Istanbul-ish. Even better as it runs through Istiklal, a very long street, so not good to walk to and from whilst shopping and hopping into and out of shops along the long stretch. Better to take advantage of the tram.

In one of the fits of municipal madness that sweep the world from time to time, almost every city, apart from Melbourne, San Francisco and a few others, killed off their tram networks. Now, Istanbul has revived some of its tram routes, but it s 'mainly for tourists' exercise. Even so, it's fun and if you haven't travelled in a tram before (streetcar in the US) you'll enjoy it.

One used to be able to move all over Istanbul on both sided of the Bosphorous many years ago. It is available only between Taksim and Tunel know, a stretch of istiklal street that is about 2 km. long. Walk one way and take the tram the other way if you are tired or lazy.

What a fabulous way to travel around and through Istanbul. Clean, modern and punctual. Not to mention convenient and easy to use. After our experience we wouldn't travel in Istanbul any other way. Can only highly recommend this mode of travel to any traveller coming to this fantastic city.
