Budget meal tip

Eat at the meat house if you are planning to eat out. The food is great, cheapish, and Matim is a one in a million waiter

Attraction tip

Do not miss the Basilica Cistern. It is the best tourist attraction nearby but easy to overlook due the other great visitor attractions available.

Attraction tip

Walk uphill a short ways to Hagia Sophia, the Blue Mosque & the castle. There are many landmarks in the area, and you can easily catch the tram here for quick (albeit sometimes crowded) transport to Ataturk Intl/other sites for a mere 4TL token.
