What we`ll show you

Beyoğlu, or Istanbul’s old European Quarter, has centuries of stories to tell. A historic Ottoman-era hub of embassies and European-style architecture, the buildings lining this neighborhood’s streets are as diverse as they are fascinating. Hop on a virtual tour with a local Istanbul guide for a fully immersive history lesson!

You’ll start at Taksim Square, a buzzing entertainment hub where vintage trams clatter by, then stroll down İstiklal Avenue, one of the most famous streets in Turkey. You’ll pass charming 19th- and 20th-century buildings, today housing boutiques, bookstores, galleries and cafés, and duck into Çiçek Pasajı, a historic covered arcade. 

Admire the facades of the famous Pera Museum and Neve Shalom Synagogue, and end your virtual tour at the awe-inspiring Galata Tower – a nine-story medieval observation tower that was completed by the Ottomans in the 1300s.
