Itinerary

This tour is just published, but turned into one of my most popular tours beloved by the participants with great expereince of Istanbul as a living city and visual experience of its heritage. Walk through the old town, take street car to Spice Market area, walk Galata Bridge, take the funicular to Galata Tower, walk Istiklal Street.
"Down the hill from Taksim Square in new Town, a young artist, painter, musician, a rookie is struggling (once upon a time, also your guide Oguz :) Some will disappear, some will succeed and go up the very same hill that's the famous bohemian district of Istanbul.
Down the hill in one of the houses, a love story took place, immortalized by the Nobel literature prize winner Orhan Pamuk, in his novel, "Museum of Innocence" . Yet, one of the houses of the lower part of the same hill is opened up as "The Museum of Innocence" with all the setting to the novel and the period items, lovable collectibles from 1970's Istanbul.
