Visit the top sites of Istanbul on this guided tour that takes you through centuries of history. Marvel at the beauty of the Blue Mosque, explore Topkapi Palace, home to Ottoman sultans, and find some unique bargains at the Grand Bazaar.

Hippodrome and Obelisks
The square in front of the Blus Mosque covers the site of the ancient “Hippodrome”, one of the most famous areas in Byzantine.

Grand Bazaar
The oldest and the largest covered market place in the world is situated in the center of the city.

Lunch Break

Topkapi Palace
Topkapi Palace was more than just the private residence of the Sultan and his court, It was the seat of the supreme executive and judiciary council, the Divan and the training school. Dormitories, gardens, libraries, schools, even mosques were at the service of the court. Attached to the palace were diverse imperial societies of artists and craftsmen which produced some of the finest work in the whole empire.

Little Hagia Sophia Mosque
Little Hagia Sophia (Kucuk Ayasofya Camii), formerly the Church of the Saints Sergius and Bacchus, is a former Eastern Orthodox church dedicated to Saints Sergius and Bacchus in Constantinople, later converted into a mosque during the Ottoman Empire.
