Best things to do in Fatih and sightseeing in Fatih
Bosphorus Cruise - Fatih
There are many cruise tours available for the travellers. It is best to avoid private tours. Official ferry companies are far more reliable. There are plenty of historical sights to explore in Istanbul but that is not an excuse for ignoring this cruise. Try it, you won't regret it.
Grand Bazaar - Fatih
The only place in Istanbul where you can shop to your hearts content,lose your way and still be happy.
This is one of the oldest and largest marketplaces in the world with more than 4000 shops selling everything from spices to carpets to antiques of any kind. For any tourist hoping to buy a few souvenirs, this is the place to be. This truly reminds you of the famous souks in various countries in the Middle East.
Eminönü - Fatih
Eminönü is the best place to know about the Byzantium Empire as ancient Byzantium was built on the areas roughly covered by Eminonu. With low population, it is one of the main tourist attractions of Istanbul. It is still a bustling city with the busiest ferry crossings for the Bosphorus and the Marmara Sea. During the day you will welcomed by many merchants, hordes of shoppers and tourists. The night in the same place is quite the contrast as it with graced with peace and quiet, a little too quiet perhaps.
