Sort of like the when in rome quote ....... do what the Istanbulians do.

Get a fish hook and stand along one of the side of the Galata bridge and catch a fish. This bridge is full of locals either biding thair time catching fish or maybe it's a hobby.

Or even if you don't go on fishing, just have a walk, catch the breeze in your face or the sun, walk from the foot of the bridge from Eminonu ferry port fronting the Yeni Cami to the bridge all the way to the end where the lower station of the historical tunnel is, which is already in Karakoy.

Watch the ferries cruising along the Bosphorous or wait for the sun to set in late afternoon which will cast a shadow or silhouette of the skyline and the majestic mosques on the background. Great dramatic scene of a historical city.

Address: Galata Bridge, Eminonu, Istanbul
Directions: it's the bridge that connects Eminonu and Karakoy and Galata area.
