I was quite disappointed on Eyup, due to many tombs, lot of Arabic, Turkish and all Muslims people, but very limited information in other languages. District presented for the pilgrims, not for tourist. Nice trolley onto the top of mountain.

I love the area of Eyup! It is so simple and traditional. Not so many tourists in this area, the food and shopping is much more reasonable than in the centrum.

Interesting historical district , peaceful atmosphere , pedestrianised streets with plenty of shops and cafes. Golden Horn ferry ,and cable car to Pierre Loti cafe give great views of the area.

Such a peaceful and tranquil place, in the conservative heart of Istanbul. Surrounded by shops and restaurants, it hums and bustles.

The mosque is beautiful, people are friendly, the market is small and nice. Nice places to eat. There are lots of cats and kittens roaming around, they’re friendly and well fed. The fountain in the square is great too.
