Busy with traffic but it comes to life at night with shops and restaurants. Nice sight but not sure about its commercial aspect; never bought anything and ate for half the price elsewhere in Sultanahmet. I know only that views when crossing on foot are...More

The lower levels of this bridge are lined with expensive sea-food restaurants and the upper section of the bridge is lined with men fishing in the waters below. I suggest visiting at night as the city lovely when lit up. A shoe shine guy tried...More

The place has a nice view. It is small and the balcony space is very limited. The price (~6€) is kind of pricy for what the tower offers. If you have limited time in Istambul then the Great Bazar or the Sultanahmed District is a...More

Galata is the bridge that separates new and old Istanbul. There are several fun restaurants under the bridge. On the bridge there are locals fishing and hanging out. It's a very fun place to visit. We crossed it several times during our stay in Istanbul.

Yet another historic place, although you will be disappointed once you are on it. A regular bridge (with a long history though) with lots of fishermen, great view of both sides (best photos can be taken here).

Grand Bazaar
Tourists, hawkers, and locals come together at the
Grand Bazaar to comb its labyrinthine passageways in
search of a bargain – be it a pair of brand name
jeans, a handcrafted silk rug, or a perfectly brewed
cup of tea. Outside the vast bazaar, worn, narrow
streets wind their way down from its lofty perch to
the southern shore of the Golden Horn, where the
evocatively aromatic Spice Bazaar beckons alongside
