Beyoglu, Istanbul
(4.3/5 based on 900+ reviews on the web)
At Beyoglu Europe and Asia are closer than anywhere else in the city. Located on the Golden Horn bay, on the European side of the city, the neighborhood has a long history of multiculturalism, as is clearly visible in its various architectural styles. From the Genoese and Venetian merchants of the Middle Ages to the European diplomats and artists of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, to local Jews and Greeks, many different communities have left their mark on the area. Catch a ride on a historical tram or browse a selection of shops. While here, you can also visit the city's largest synagogue and Catholic cathedral, and see numerous museums, art galleries, and theaters. Bars, restaurants, nightclubs, and cafes range from traditionally Turkish to distinctly European here.

  • You need to do this trip just to sample the local culture and atmosphere, very pleasant. Lively area with lots of tourists. 
  • When you visit Istanbul recommend searching a hotel in Beyoglu District for its proximity to shopping and dining. As well as its proximity to Taksim Square where there are subways
