Day 2 - Istanbul - Walking City Tour ( B / L )
After breakfast at your hotel we pick you up from your hotel to start our full day guided city tour. We start our tour in Sultanahmet, the heart of old Istanbul.
Ayasofya (Hagia Sophia) is one the greatest masterpieces of Byzantine architecture, built by Emperor Justinian in the 6th century. Converted into a mosque in 1453 by Conqueror Mehmet, it is now one of the world's greatest museums. Its massive dome still dominates the skyline of old Istanbul .
Blue Mosque is one of the most prominent landmarks of the city. It takes its name from the exquisite Iznik tiles that decorate the interior, and it is the only imperial mosque with six minarets. Designed by a pupil of the famous architect Sinan in the 17th century, it was originally called Sultanahmet, from which the area takes its name.
Hippodrome was the centre of sporting and social events during the Byzantine Empire. The Serpentine Column, The Obelisk of Theodosius and The German Fountain are notable monuments decorating the arena.
Grand Bazaar is the oldest and largest shopping centre in Turkey, situated in the centre of the old city. It has 4,000 shops full of treasures, including carpets, leather, icons, ceramics and jewellery .
Topkapı Palace was the principal residence of the Ottoman Sultans for nearly 400 years. It is now a museum and houses a fabulous collection of crystal, silver, Chinese porcelain, jewels and costumes. The armoury and royal Harem are particularly worth seeing.
Little Hagia Sophia Mosque was formerly the Church of Sergius and Baccus. You may see fine examples of early Byzantine art.
