The alleyways of Ortaköy

Alleyways of Ortaköy

Go there, preferably on a Sunday and enjoy the outdoor exhibition of works by many local artists. Ortaköy "the village in the middle of the Bosphorus" is crisscrossed with little shopping alleyways with a multitude of shops where you will find and admire local crafts and enjoy the classic garnished baked potato so enjoyed by the locals.


You can get there on foot (but it is a bit long and the traffic is heavy), or make a stop during your cruise on the Bosphorus, or do as the locals do and get there in five minutes for 3 Tl with the bus from Beşiktaş to Ortaköy.
