"Taksim Tramway" Istanbul Transportation Tip by Lion_Beat

Istanbul Transportation: 517 reviews and 673 photos

  Tram Taksim
by Lion_Beat

There is a tram line in Taksim, very short one which is more for turists then for transportation. The trams on this line are old-fashion ones.

The line is from Taksim Square to the Tunel:
Taksim - Aga Camii - Galatasaray - Petits Champs - Tunel.

You can take the tram, but you can enjoy more just walking from Taksim Square to Tunel. And when you'll be coming back - take the tram!

There is also a 'tunel' underground from the end point to Karakoy.

Type: Train

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
