Istiklal Street Beyoglu

The busiest street of Istanbul – Customized Istanbul Tours

A walk on Istiklal Street during customized Istanbul tours, means time spent nicely. Just like to be in Ephesus with Ephesus tour guide, or anywhere in Turkey. Valuable time is guaranteed. Istiklal Caddesi (Independence Avenue) is the heart of Beyoglu, the more modern district of Istanbul built during the 19th century.

The city’s most popular strolling, shopping and snacking street. It is now reserved for pedestrians, lined with boutiques, cafes, consulates, restaurants, galleries, cinemas and banks. That means you have many places to see here in your daily Istanbul tour. When 19th-century travellers spoke of Constantinople (Istanbul) as the Paris of the East, they were thinking of the Grande Rue de Pera (Istiklal Caddesi). Also, of its half-European, half-Asian culture. The avenue begins at Taksim Square, the hub of modern Istanbul.
