Catch the ferry to Uskudar and walk up the main street in this bustling suburb. We did, hoping to get to see where Florence Nightingale worked. We did not end up finding it but what we did do was catch a brief glimpse of normal Turkish life away from the tourist area. Walk through the Aga Camii to the main street. We also managed to buy some tea glasses for 6 YTL in a shop (see shopping tip), have a great coffee and pastries and have a fantastic meal at Kanaat Lokantasi. (see restaurant tips).

The ferry costs 2YTL return and leaves Eminonu every 15-30mins up to 11pm.
