A STROLL THROUGH THE ASIAN SIDE
Starting at the forgotten antique market of Uskudar we will make our way through it's dark rooms filled with treasures and a walk over to lovely Kuzguncuk, once a sleepy Bosphorus village known for it's religious tolerance it now bustles with cafe life and a true mixture of artists and locals. Here we will see some fine examples of traditional wooden architecture, open green spaces, galleries and more quaintness. Those who would like to visit the local synagogue can send a photo of their passport and there is a small donation of 25.tl. Lunch in a typical Black Sea restaurant in the next town up of Beylerbey and an optional visit to the Ottoman Summer Palace along the water.
Please contact for details.
