A Local Hub

One of the most-visited boulevards in Istanbul, the Istiklal Caddesi may play host to as many as three million tourists in a single weekend. Wear your most comfortable walking shoes and take precautions with your wallet when you wander this remarkable Ottoman-era pedestrian avenue.

Istiklal Caddesi meanders through the historic Beyoğlu district, where it offers nearly two kilometers of cafes, restaurants, pubs, theaters, bookstores and art galleries. If you enjoy shopping for beautiful bargains, be sure to include a jaunt along Istiklal Caddesi to your travel itinerary.

Utrip Tips

*The street begins at Taksim Square

*Be sure to explore the side streets if you're looking to get away from the more touristy attractions. There are some great cafes, restaurants, and nightlife to be found if you simply step off the main drag.

*Be sure to check out the Galatasaray Gate about halfway down the street.
