Old Town hotels
The Old Town of Istanbul is all that remains of Constantinople, also called Byzantium. You can walk its streets and see evidence of its glorious history all around. The best outdoor markets are to be found here, where you can purchase anything from rugs to spices. But what really makes Old Town interesting is that it sits on a peninsula and is surrounded by the blue waters of the Bosporus, the Golden Horn, and the Sea of Marmara. So unique and culturally significant is this part of the city that it has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
- Listen to a classical music concert at the Hagia Irene in Istanbul's Old Town, one of the few cathedrals that was never converted to a mosque.
- Spend the day in Istanbul’s Gulhane Park that was once the royal hunting grounds but is now a lovely park with flowers, sea views, and a group of cafes near the water.
- See the artefacts in the Museum of Archaeology in Old town; it contains Sumerian Tablets, Roman statues, even pieces of the walls of Babylon.
Istanbul has a marvellous public transportation system that will get you into Old Town with little difficulty. The tram system has stations at Eminonu, Gulhane, and Sultanahmet. Bus lines run straight from Ataturk Airport into all points in the city, including Old Town. Lines 61b and 96T are the best for getting this ancient part of town. The metro stations are in Askaray and Zeytinburnu and you transfer to Trams from there. Taxis are relatively inexpensive and you might prefer them if coming from the airport. Once there, you won't need any other transportation than your feet.
