Just a short walk from Dolmabahce Museum, Ortakoy is a pedestrian friendly district where you can hang out, and visit the small stands with hand-crafted art. Or, have a nice meal next to Bosphorus.

Since ORtakoy is connected to Besiktas, it would be a good idea to ask the Besiktas Municipality, their contact can be found here: besiktas.bel.tr/Sayfa/13182/iletisim
