We visited Istanmbul for a business and we had limited time to explore this beautiful city well. However we visited the main spots of this old City. One of the places I liked in this city was Bosphorus Bridge. There are great views of the Bosphorus strait and Sea from the bridge. I liked mostly the yachts, vessels and chips... More

It's expensive to drive through it but don't worry. There are many spots around the city where you can admire the bridge.

It's a huge and impressive bridge.The most impressive at this bridge is the agent that connects two continents.It's not the only one in the city.There are two bridges that connect Europe and Asia in Istanbul.

Here we are bridging from Europe to Asia. You have to be getting photos of that! And possibly cruising under it and driving over it (warning - lots of traffic). There is a flag/banner hanging to let you know the wind as well. You can see this bridge a very long ways off if you are near the waterfront.

If you take the Bosphorus boat trip which you should, you can admire the beautiful villas and castles along side the Bosporus shores but also pass under the Bosporus bridge which is impressive to say the least... I advise you to see it by night when the lighting gives it a lot of charm!

Just full of history and character, enormous and extremely busy. A very hustle and bustle location with lots of fishing going on.

Staying in Beyoglu

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
