This is a multi-stop trip via ferries, starting from Emirgan. We will begin our exploration in Çengelköy, where we will enjoy a Turkish breakfast. Then, we will hop on the ferry again to Kanlıca, where we will wander through the quaint streets, embark on a photo tour, and perhaps try some Kanlıca yogurt and traditional street food such as kokoreç and balık ekmek. Our final stop will be Anadolu Hisarı, where we can relax by the Bosphorus and lie on the grass to enjoy this relaxed summer weekend day.
