We were based in this area and there was so much to do and see that we did not explore any other area. There is something for everyone – so many sites, religious buildings (not just Muslim), cafés/restaurants, shopping, green space for children, view of the Bosporus and several sites for those who like to go off-the beat-path.
In the last few years, there has been a lot said about the safety in Turkey especially after the attempted military coup in 2016. This area is so safe, at night you could see children playing around Sultanahmet Square and there was a lot of police presence and some military presence too.
Even if you do not have an itinerary, you will find plenty of things to interest you; in the mornings I had a planned itinerary and the afternoon, I would explore the area and find new things or find new routes to get to places.
