It was spring, so it was a perfect time to go cruising on a boat. The view was enchanting. We were able to cross to Europe from Asia. The one hour spent only to the boat was very relaxing.

The cruise is a must do for a first timer in Istanbul. There are many private tours offered by folks throughout the city, these in my opinion are unnecessarily expensive. Take the public cruise that takes of from karaköy - you won't get the guide...More

Istanbul’s most famous street, pedestrianized Istiklal
Caddesi (Independence Avenue), throbs day and night
and offers a fantastic array of architectural sights,
shops, treats, and throngs upon teeming throngs of
people. At the avenue’s northeastern end is expansive
Taksim Square, thought by many to be the very heart of
the city, with many of Turkey’s most renowned
restaurants and some of Europe’s most happening
