I love this part of Istanbul. It has everything you want from Turkey. Amazing buildings, great people-watching opportunities, souvenir shopping, photo ops. Lovely

You can get in any bus to Sultanahmet or trainway. It's very easy to go. Personels will tell you how to go, show you on the map

If your planning to stay in Istanbul i totally recommend staying in Sultan Ahmet area,walking distance from all historical area..very nice to walk through at night...very near from spice bazaar and grand bazaar...you got all transportation,Marmaray and bus stations around...
Simply all what you need is there...
You must try corn,fish sandwiches,nuts,icecream and of course Turkish tea and baklawa from every street corner and street seller :)

Lovely bustling part to walk through. Many things to see! Blue Mosque, Hagia Sofia. You will find carts selling fresh bagels (with Nutella-delicious!) Hot chestnuts and Mealies! Wonderful experience.
