Discover Istanbul through 6 districts and 6 maps

Karaköy/ Galta/ Beyoðlu/ Taksim

For each district there is a double-page of addresses (restaurants listed in ascending order of price cafés, bars, tearooms, music venues and stores) followed by a fold-out map for the relevant area with the essential places to see (indicated on the map by a star *). These places are by no means all that Istanbul has to offer but to us they are unmissable. The grid-referencing system (A B2) makes it easy for you to pinpoint addresses quickly on the map.
Transportation and hotels in Istanbul
