Taksim

Day 21 – Taksim, Istanbul, Turkey

April 2015

Today we have a long itinerary and we start by taking the tram from Sultanahmet to Kabatas and changed to a funicular to Taksim. It’s not for what Taksim Square has been in the news regarding the huge demo sometime ago that we are here, but rather to go to Istiklal street, the most happening street in Istanbul.
