“the heart of the city”
Reviewed February 19, 2013

All the important sights are there, full of tourists, noisy, but charming as well !In the streets behind the main areas you can see " normal " life as well. The people are all very friendly and you never feel threatened.

Reviewed February 18, 2013

Most of the historic sites are in this area and within walking distance. There's lots of bars and restaurants for you to chose from.Try the Cosy bar for great western music.

“The Center!”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

A great square with many of the great monuments to visit! Many places to eat (also not turkish). if you have only one day in the city, go there and you can go to the basilica sistern, the Agia Sofia and the Blue Mosque.
