Fodor's Expert Review Old Harbor
Another way to enter the old town is via the Old Harbor, now overflowing with yachts, fishing vessels, and tourist-excursion boats; stroll up and take your pick, but be prepared for heftily inflated prices. If you're in a car, follow the signs to the yat limanı (yacht harbor), and you'll find a convenient parking lot behind the quaysides. From here you can head up any of the lanes leading north and east from the harbor to reach the heart of the old town. On foot, wander down from the Saat Kulesi, forking to the right past the T-shirt and perfume shops, until you reach the bottom of the harbor.
