It is the main road from where tramway T1 goes through. It is the heart of the Fatih area, and the road which pass in front of the most significant monuments of the city. You can find whatever you want...cafes,restaurants,shops,museums,bazaars and many more.

If you go to the Grand Bazar, you will cross Divanyolu. If you can, walk from Haya Sofia to the Grand Bazar. It´s a unique tour.

relatively small area of Istanbul somehow manages to
