There are many destinations to visit and explore in Beyoglu. Beyoglu has very nice museums, seasides and towers.
Some of İstiklâl Avenue has a 19th-century metropolitan character, and the avenue is lined with Neoclassical and Art Nouveau buildings. The nostalgic tram which runs on İstiklal Avenue, between Taksim Square and Tünel, was also re-installed in the early 1990s with the aim of reviving the historic atmosphere of the district.
Some historic neighbourhoods around İstiklal Avenue have recently been recreated, such as Cezayir Street near Galatasaray High School, which became known as La Rue Française and has rows of francophone pubs, cafés and restaurants playing live French music. Artiste Terasse on Cezayir Street is a popular restaurant-bar which offers panoramic views of the Hagia Sophia Museum, Topkapi Palace and Galata Tower.
Taksim İstiklal Avenue, Galata Tower, Pera Museum, Orhan Kemal Museum, Türvak Museum, Doğançay Museum and Galatasaray Museum are many tourism destinations in Istanbul.
