Highlights of the tour
This tour starts at 09.00 and finishes around 16.00
You will be met by your guide at 09.00 at your hotel. First we will head to Topkapi Palace which was the opulent residence of the Ottoman Sultans. Along will stories from your guide you will live the history and feel the atmosphere of past centuries.
Then you will continue to Hagia Sophia by walking through a lovely alleyway full of Ottoman Houses. Hagia Sophia will amaze you with its history and the tales hiding inside. When you are inside, you will appreciate the ability of Justinian and his architects and their vision, even back in the 6th century when this was the largest church in all of Christendom. This was once one of the largest and finest buildings in the world.
From here you will walk to Sultanahmet Mosque. Built by Sultan Ahmed 1 in 1616. Once you walk in to the mosque you will be surrounded by magnificent 17th Century handmade blue Iznik tiles. Then you will understand why they call this gray building ‘Blue’ Mosque.
Our next point of interest will be the Hippodrome which was the main entertainment arena of Constantinople during the Roman and Byzantine era. However today you will need a little bit imagination to picture the chariot races and the fans going crazy with the speed and excitement of them.
We will then walk to the Grand Bazaar just to experience the incredible and lively atmosphere.
After spending some time here we will head back to the hotel, or leave you to make the bargain of a lifetime.
