Getting around
Just two miles north along the Golden Horn from Eminönü – the side-by-side quarters of Fener and Balat. Century-old Ottoman houses lean against each other in a kaleidoscope of reds, blues and greens. And art galleries and design shops dot the area along the water.

Like the rest of Istanbul, Fener-Balat is changing. Unlike much of the rest of the city, though, the changes don't – yet – involve condominiums and shopping malls. Nor have rents skyrocketed as much as in other areas that have retained an Ottoman flavour. This is why the quarter has become a cool hangout and a recognised design district; last autumn, tours of the area were a main event at the Istanbul Design Biennial.
Car not needed
