Fun place to spend a few lazy afternoons sipping Turkish coffee or tea. Or the pace picks up in the evenings. Lot's of shops selling souvenirs. One of the few places that has a mosque, church, and synagogue showing the true diversity and melting pot culture of Istanbul.

A great spot for an evening walk with views and atmosphere that are even nicer that Istiklal avenue.

If you want to get out of the busy city centre you should visit this area Ortaköy. It has nice restaurants, terraces and great views on the river Bosporus and it's bridge. If you are looking for tiny streets with shops, nice squares with restaurants, go there.

nice place to be for a few ours. From our hotel we went by tram and bus 25e. Walked around and sat at the waterside. Nice to walk around and go shopping. From there you can take a ferry to the other side. We liked it. After visiting this place we walked to the Ylidiz park to sit in the shade of the trees and have a picknic. We did get lost in the park, lol. It is big ;)
