Beyoğlu is my home for the past three years. I live and work here. It’s local, historical and cosmopolitan. Backstreets of Istiklal Avenue are always full of surprises. Narrow and hilly streets, which host diverse communities living in harmony, are in ‘perfect disorder’ with one another.
You have 12 hours in Istanbul. Where would you go? Its a hard decision to make. There are plenty of choices and alternatives.
Would you go see the old city and visit the most famous temples of Istanbul: Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque or Suleymaniye Mosque or do you fancy having a private cruise along the Bosphorus Strait and afterwards sit down for a relaxed lunch at one of those nice fish restaurants?
