Istiklal Avenue - Review
During weekends, over three million people throng the length of this avenue. Boutiques, music stores, bookstores, art galleries, cinemas, theatres, libraries, cafes, pubs, night clubs with live music, historical patisseries, chocolateries and restaurants; this place simply does not run out of experiences to offer. It adds to the atmosphere in the evening, when street performers come out to play. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Istanbul itinerary 5 days.

Istiklal Avenue, Istanbul Reviews
Nice sitting area... coffee was ok
This is a traditional place, more of an everyday dining than a tourist attraction. Of course this is the place I would choose to have a good meal and rest a little during a busy tour. Highly recommended!
Nice place to visit
Really, *the* place to see in Istanbul. There is culture, history, and landmarks, but for solid nightlife, entertainment, and food, few places match Taxim and Istiklal. Be prepared for a ton of people: this place is always packed. Roasted walnuts, chicken pilaf, simit (think bagel with sesame seeds), and medya (mussels) are served in the streets, and bars and restaurants are everywhere. There is also a historical trolley that is very cheap to ride, though it doesn't really go anywhere. Getting here is easy: there are two metro stations on either end of the street, and frequent bus stops. An absolute must for the visitor to Istanbul; just be sure to be aware, as it is a common place for protests, and the police can be overzealous.
