Inside this Passage, there is a very old shop of Turkish delights, it works since 19th century. The delights are very authentic and tasty, you differ so much from those ones offered in standard shops. You can also find many sea-food restaurant as there is a fish-market inside the Passage. Try any, all of them are very good. A lot... More

A covered gallery full of restaurants in an old building in Beyoglu. Even if you do not stay for a meal it is worth a visit if you are going to Galata Tower, Taksim Square or shopping on Istiklal street.

Very charming tiny passage located at Istiklal avenue, romantic and filled with sea food restaurants. The architecture of the place is magnificent, definitely pass by strolling by.

It is nice to pop by and see but its not as great as the pictures make it our to be - it is a collection of restaurants that are based there which takes away from the actual feel. Nice o pop in and see it whilst walking down the famous Istiklal street

Flower Market ( Cicek pasaji) is the most authentic place to taste sea food with a drink.One of the characteristic properties of Pera ( Beyoglu). Even if you do not drink or eat sea food you should pay a visit to see the building.

Staying in Beyoglu

Neighbourhood Profile
Beyoglu
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 nightlife in close proximity. In striking contrast, Beyoglu’s less trafficked areas – such as the affluent Cihangir and the antiques district of Cukurcuma – exude Old World charm and provide contemplative calm and splendid diversion via an assortment of cozy cafes, attractive boutiques, and quiet lanes.
