What to expect

Walking through a city is an intimate way of getting to know it, and there is no better way to learn about the Karaköy Jewish District than to walk around it.

You'll go on a group walking tour around modern-day Galata and its colorful streets, all while learning about its daily life as you walk by the Jewish Apartments. You'll also walk up and down the famed Camondo Steps, an architectural marvel constructed using a quirky combination of Art Noveau and Neo-Baroque artistic styles.

Marvel with the stories and commentary of a fun and knowledgeable English-speaking guide, especially when you drop by the Jewish Museum where you'll learn about the culture and history of Jewish Turks. Venture into the consecrated grounds of the district's synagogues such as the Ashkenazi and Schneider synagogues, relax in their calming and holy atmospheres and understand how religion has influenced the lifestyles of the district's inhabitants.

This walking tour will be one for the ages, and definitely a must if you want to make your stay in Istanbul worthwhile.
