Welcome to Istanbul new district.
The new district covers the area from Karaköy to Taksim Square, a few blocks up the hill. In Byzantium times, this area was inhabited by the commercial colonies of Geneose and Venetian settlers. In the late Ottoman era, it was also a residential area for non-Muslims, including Jews, Catholics, and Eastern Orthodox Christians. Today, this part of the city is dominated by the famous Galata Tower.
Taksim Square is the New District's transportation hub, connected to other parts of Istanbul by bus, Metro, funicular and "nostalgic tram".

A Recent Review of this tour

I didn't want to part with Safiye so booked another full day to explore the new Europe side with her: Galata and Beyoglu, Museum of Innocence and the Galata Mawlavi House, Istiklal street and Taksim Square, and a Turkish fashion boutique crawl. Again, she tailored the itinerary to my interests adding her knowledge and suggestions as we went along. She is just SO GOOD professionally, with such impressive skills. I feel very fortunate to have met her and I hope to return.
