This posh and residential neighborhood is a favorite among the young crowd of İstanbul for shopping, dining and let’s be honest- to see and to be seen.
Many high-end fashion brands such as Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Christian Louboutin have their stores in this neighborhood alongside Turkish department stores Beymen and Vakko and popular fashion brands.
Most of the cafés have tables on the sidewalks, perfect for an afternoon of people watching over a cup of coffee.
But Nişantaşı isn’t just for shopping and dining. It also has a very laid back feel to it once you start discovering the side streets. Many families have lived here for generations and small businesses such as butchers, produce shops, corner stores, barbershops and tea houses still operate successfully.
Easily accessible from the city center, we recommend spending half a day here when you get a little tired of the sight seeing.
