This is the most historic area in Old Istanbul, so definitely a must see for any tourist. I am not happy about the general appearance of the streets, about the many people trying to take advantage of the tourists and the prices above the average in Istanbul.

historic buildings and architecture, city walls, rambling markets and souks, great food and simple transport form the modern part of the city. quite lovely way to spend a day or two. Remember to come equipped with the correct stuff (headscarves and long clothing for women, long trousers and long sleeves for men) and the correct attitude when visiting the mosques, and be aware of prayer times as access is limited or closed at these times.

This are is by far the best area to live in as a tourist. You are close to all the sights and the tram line T1 that goes all the way to Istikal cad.
