Go walking and sightseing especially at night.. You can start by visiting the sultanahmet square (or Midan), Walk in the alleys where you can find great souvenir shops and then have dinner/drink in any pub or restaurant.

Put the walking shoes on and walk. Don't be afraid to turn down lanes, ally ways and see what you will find

This area is very impressive any time, but be sure to see it at night. The Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia are beautifully lighted.

When you walk around this district, you are transported to the old istanbul. Narrow streets, markets everywhere, and old buildings.
