Galata is the Genoese headquarters of Istanbul and as such has a pretty unique aura. It is also the upcoming bohemian quarter of the city. With a mix such as that -the nostalgic and the bohemian modern- the neighborhood around Galata Tower is unlike any...
Walking down the Tunel to the Tower or taking a side cross to discover the side streets, each road that leads to the Tower will bewilder the walker by its artisan shops, butcher and fashion designers' workshops lined up next to each other.
Amidst this multi-cultural and artistic loci are also one or two unique restaurants serving local cuisine samples or diverse cuisines from around the world such as Indian or Spanish. It is not only the taste of these restaurants, but also the authenticity of the neighborhood that attracts crowds of tourists and locals alike.
