If you have already enjoyed the historical center of Istanbul with its graceful Byzantine domes, then now is the time to go on a tour of the Istiklal district and look at the city from the other side.
A city that looks more like Paris or Rome, a city where the most respectable and modern shops opened, a city that was the center of attraction of the upper world.
Your tour will start at the Karakei Square, from which you will climb the winding streets to the Galata Tower. There is a stunning scenic view of the strait and the city with its tiled roofs. Do not miss the opportunity to look at the city from a height!
You will walk through the area of Pera, learn its history and why travelers from all over the world used to go here. And then you will go out to the busiest street of the city of Istiklal and you will continue your route along it until the very end of our walk.
You will be surprised how closely the history of this street is intertwined with the history of revolutionary Russia, learn about the wave of Russian emigrants and the impact it had on the cultural life of Istanbul.
And of course, we will not let you miss the places where the best Turkish coffee is brewed and oriental sweets are served!
