Byzantine And Ottoman Relics Full Day Tour with Guide & Meal



Byzantine And Ottoman Relics Full Day Tour with Guide & Meal

Quick Overview

Byzantine And Ottoman Relics Full Day Tour - duration approx. 8h
A full day tour of the Old City of Istanbul. Marvel at beautiful architecture that spans empires and centuries, enjoy traditional Turkish food and explore one of the oldest and biggest covered bazaars in the world.
Start the day with a drive to Sultanahmet Square and visit the remains of the Hippodrome, where chariot races were held when the city was still Constantinople of the Byzantine times. Then stroll over to the magnificent structure of the Blue Mosque, one of the most beautiful monuments in the city, famous for its towers and minarets and the stunning hand painted blue tiles in its interior. Close by is the next stop, Hagia Sofia, once a Byzantine cathedral, then a mosque and now a fascinating museum.
All that exercise is rewarded with a relaxing traditional Turkish meal before carrying on to the Topkapi Palace or Seraglio. This sprawling palace is now a popular museum but once was the home of the sultans and their harems. Having seen where the sultans lived, the next stop is their tombs, a beautiful example of Ottoman architecture with fabulous interiors in red, green and purple.
End the day with a visit to the Grand Bazaar. One of the oldest and largest covered bazaars in the world, it's a fascinating maze of over 4,000 little shops and cafés. You're sure to find something you like, and don't forget to practice your bargaining skills while you're there.
