Overview

Bursa and Mt. Uludag; Full-Day Bursa Tour from Istanbul with Museum entrance fees Cable Car Ticket Lunch

Bursa Tour: Visit the city of Bursa, once the capital of the Ottoman Empire, on this day trip from Istanbul that starts with a 2-hour ferry ride.

Enjoy the views during the trip, and visit Tophane for a panoramic look at Bursa. Enjoy a local lunch, and ascend Mt. Uludag, the ancient Olympus, by cable car to take in the scenery.

Other activities include a silk market and covered bazaar.

Our journey starts with a ferry down to Yalova, enjoying the lovely conutry-side view.
Drive to Bursa, former Ottoman Capital which was founded by the Bitnynian King Prusias I Cholus “the Lame” (reigned 228-185 BC), and he also gave his name -altered to the Hellenistic “Prusa”- the city. Legend has it that the great Carthaginian general Hannibal helped him to choose the site. The city is frequently cited as “YeÅŸil Bursa” (meaning “Green Bursa”) in a reference to the beautiful parks and gardens located across its urban tissue, as well as to the vast forests in rich variety that extend in its surrounding region.

The city is synonymous with the mountain Uludag which towers behind the city core and which is also a famous ski resort. The mausoleums of early Ottoman sultans are located in Bursa and the numerous edifices built throughout the Ottoman period constitute the city’s main landmarks. The surrounding fertile plain, its thermal baths, several interesting museums, notably a rich museum of archaeology, and a rather orderly urban growth are further principal elements that complete Bursa’s overall picture.

After the lunch, we will climb to Uludag Mountain (the legendary Mount Olympos) by cable car (first stage) which is a favourite center of the winter sports held and as well as skiing, its richness of flora and fauna has made it into a National Park and summer activities like trekking and camping are also popular, visit to the old Silk Market in the Covered Bazaar.

Late evening return to Istanbul and transfer to your hotel.
