Trams

Trams: at Istanbul’s European side, there are two lines in service: the T1 line from Kabataş allows easy access to Sultanahmet, and the T4 line that goes northwest of the city . It runs from 6am to 11pm. The tram in Istanbul is very clean and air conditioned.

Of these two, the T1 is the most relevant for tourists, since it takes passengers to the city’s main attractions. Tourists are recommended to use it, since it is really cheap and fast and definitely easiest way to get to the old town. Here are its tourist-relevant stops:
