  • I just love walking around, eating in a fish restaurant. Fish sandwich is good too with cold Col drinks. Sitting in a seaside and watching people from different countries.  more »

I warn you not mamgiatelo before catching the ferry if the Bosporus has moved, could digest it the next day

  • Eminonu is the point of sailing to other ports in Turkey, and it is the sailing point for the Bosphorus famous tour. Many tours are available to choose from, my best tour is the public tour of ₺ 12 or ₺ 15 maximum. It takes about 1.5 hours, showing all the main points around Bosphorus, and you can enjoy the Turkish çay or feeding the sea birds. Highly recommended..
  • The right place to have a unique experience in Istanbul. Like strolling the pier, then buy some fish sandwich on one of the boat restaurant there. You eat the sandwich while swinging on the boat.
  • It is a historic fish-bread place: However, it is always crowded and you are usually being disturbed by people who want to sell you something. Beside that, fish-bread doesn't taste so delicious. There arte much better places that you can grab fish-wrap.
  • Good port near all fantastic place in Europe-istanbul.. you can take sea-travel
  • We started from here to go to Biyuk ada iland
