Eminonu Pier, Istanbul

(3.9/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web)
Visit Eminonu Pier to experience traditional fish sandwiches prepared on the restaurant boats docked here--they're known nationwide. Sit on a bench as you eat, and take in the views of the ferries coming and going and the nearby mosque. The pier is walking distance from many attractions in the old city, but is also accessible by tram or taxi. Use it as a starting point for exploring the Galata Bridge or for touring the areas of the Spice Market and Grand Bazaar. Put Eminonu Pier and other Istanbul attractions into our Istanbul tour planner, and watch your holiday take shape.
