What to Expect

Being separated from the Old Town of Sultanahmet by the Golden Horn straight; the district was known as “Pera” meaning “Across” in Greek during the Middle Ages. This name remained in common use until the early 20th century and the establishment of the Turkish Republic. With it’s shops, café’s, bars, art galleries an so much more today known as “Beyoğlu”, the district is creating the “beating heart of Istanbul”. And it’s heart never stops…

İstiklal Avenue
İstiklal Avenue or Istiklal Street (Turkish: İstiklâl Caddesi, French: Grande Rue de Péra, English: Independence Avenue) is one of the most famous avenues in Istanbul, Turkey, visited by nearly 3 million people in a single day over the course of weekends. Located in the historic Beyoğlu (Pera) district, it is an elegant pedestrian street, 1.4 kilometers long, which houses boutiques, music stores, bookstores, art galleries, cinemas, theatres, libraries, cafés, pubs, night clubs with live music, historical patisseries, chocolateries and restaurants.

The avenue, surrounded by late Ottoman era buildings (mostly from the 19th and early 20th centuries) that were designed with the Neo-Classical, Neo-Gothic, Renaissance Revival, Beaux-Arts, Art Nouveau and First Turkish National Architecture styles; as well as a few Art Deco style buildings from the early years of the Turkish Republic, and a number of more recent examples of modern architecture; starts from the medieval Genoese neighbourhood around Galata Tower and ultimately leads up to Taksim Square.

Secret Gangways
Pasaj is a word adopted by Turkish from French; meaning “Gangway”. The norm of a Passage is, apart from being a gateway from one street to the other is that they are usually surrounded by shops and café’s. Beyoğlu is home to few of the most famous Turkish passages. Atlas Pasajı, Çiçek Pasajı, Hazzopoulo Pasajı, Aznavur Pasajı and so many more. On this tour I will take you through and to many of the secret passages of Istanbul, you would not explore on your own and give you a totally different view on the city..!
