Old & Historical Shopping Streets In Istanbul


When people think of shopping in Istanbul, they typically think of the Grand Bazaar and its maze-like alleys filled with everything from carpets to local spices. If you're searching for anything other than the bustle of the extra-large covered market, though, the city has much to offer. Culture Trip selects the finest shopping alleys in Istanbul, from antique stores to high-street fashion. 

The most popular, vibrant, and touristy squares, avenues, and streets in Istanbul may be found here. On your vacation in Istanbul, you may enjoy a wonderful day out by dining out, having a drink while relaxing in one of the famous cafes, shopping, walking, and being entertained in all of those locations. 

 

Serdar-i Ekrem Street


 One of Istanbul's best shopping streets is this little cobblestone lane near the old Galata Tower. There are no big-name labels here; instead, there are a slew of hip shops. Check out Turkish designer Arzu Kaprol's store, Kashif Sofa's antiques, and the beautiful boutique Atelier 55 towards the end. After that, stop by Mavra for a cup of coffee and some wonderful homemade chocolate cake. If you're out and about around cocktail hour, stop by the Georges Hotel Galata's terrace for a cool drink and a wonderful view of the city.
