Using Istanbul’s public transportation

Jump to last reply

We will be staying in the immediate area around Taksim Square and plan on using Istanbul’s public transportation to get from that area to the Sultanahmet area. I’m assuming that it’s relatively easy to use, even for first time tourists to the city?

Am I correct that we would first take the F1 Taksim-Kabatas Funicular; then we’d change to the T1 Kabatas-Bagcilar Tramway Line for stops in the Sultanahmet area? We plan on buying one Istanbul Kart for the two of us to use. I assume that is the usual tourist method, even for a short city stay?

Thanks.
