this place is very nice to visit including a lot of shops for every thing specialty gold souk and jewelry
Many less gained pounds ago. I went on my own to see this place. I had always wanted to see this place. Especially after seeing it in John Romer's Documentary Film - "Byzantium". If you wanted to see one of the these bizarre in the world then this is the place to see. By the way all the Merchants will say "Hello" in order to come to their stall. So just smile and have a ball! Just prepared to spend a lot of time there and get lost in the past. (By the way there were some pretty good deals in spices. And I had no problem in getting them back in to the country)
My Wife and I came across this little gem at Sultanahmet on our way to Blue Mosque. Ordered a cup turkish coffee, which is the best we realised after having at at least six other places in whole of Istanbul. One of the hosts tought my wife how to make a turkish coffee. A lovely must visit on your trip to Istanbul
Even if you are not into the shopping spirit, this is a place you must visit and wonder around while in Istanbul.
