“Spice market not very far from Eminonu. Beware of few traders ripping tourist off”
Review of Eminonu Square

Eminonu Square

Spice market within walking distance from Eminonu. Good idea to haggle when shopping. However one of the kebab shop add things e.g. a can of drink which you have not ordered and charge you three times its normal price. Beware of few traders in Istanbul will try and fleece unwary tourist.

This busy square that overlooks the Bosphorus is undoubtedly one of the most touristic places of Sultanahmet, at any hour of the day here you will see thousands of tourists crowded, being a very important crossroads between the Galata Bridge, the markets and the new mosque Sultanahmet Eminonu.
No doubt to capture the best of this beautiful corner of the city the best time is at sunset when the orange light of the sun illuminates the mosque and the atmosphere it is so romantic.
It may not be enough for a camera roll..
