Firstly, we walk or catch a tram to Karakoy where we have our Turkish breakfast which includes Turkish menemen, sucuklu omlet, kaymak, and honey.

Istiklal Caddesi
Following the breakfast, we will catch a metro up to Pera and walk along the famous Istiklal street and give a break for a cup of tea and coffee.
Kadikoy Carsisi

Walking down Istiklal Street will take us to Karakoy ferry station where we will catch a ferry from the European side of Istanbul to the Asian side to Kadikoy (Kalkedon ancient name that means the city of the blind) where you are going to taste Mersin’s tantuni or if you are feeling adventurous maybe have a liver wrap. We will continue to the fish market where you can sample stuffed or fried mussels as well as pickles. Turkish people love their pickles and we will visit a shop that only sells pickles.

Misir Carsisi (Spice Market)

So after indulging, we will then catch a ferry back to the European side of Istanbul and visit the Spice Market. Where you will have a chance to see where locals have been buying their spices for hundreds of years.
