Istanbul Sights

Eminönü

Fodor's Review

The transportation hub of Old Istanbul, Eminönü teems with activity. There are docks for traditional ferry boats (including both short and day-long Bosphorus cruises) and faster "sea bus" catamarans that cross the Bosphorus, as well as the Eminönü tram stop, the Sirkeci train station, and the departure area for buses headed to Istanbul's western districts. Thousands of people and vehicles rush through this bustling, frenetic neighborhood by the hour, and the many street

traders here do a quick business selling everything from trinkets to designer knockoffs. From Eminönü, you can cross the Galata Bridge on foot or via the tramway to Karaköy, the gateway to the "New Town."
