Fatih is a huge municipality that makes up the historic part of the city and all of old Constantinople. It also has several interesting historic neighborhoods to wander through.

To make things easier, I’ve split Fatih from Eminönü, which was once a separate municipality that contained the heart of Constantinople. The two municipalities merged in 2009 and Eminönü is now just a district within Fatih. Eminönü contains many of the biggest tourist attractions in the city.
