Description

Our starting point of the tour is the Hippodrome which was once the centre of the early Byzantines social and recreational life. The name Hippodrome refers to the fact that it was used as a ground for horse racing in its early time of use.

After visiting the Hippodrome we will go to the Blue Mosque which is just next to the Hippodrome and which is equally known as the Sultan Ahmed Mosque. It is a piece of exceptional architecture within the four walls of elegance. Its exceptional architectural exterior design includes one main dome, eight secondary domes and six minarets.

After this holy place we will visit to the Topkapi Palace which was constructed in 1459. It served as the primary residence of the Ottoman Empires for nearly four centuries.

This wonderful Palace consists of a large area with several buildings once used for different purposes. The palace offers a fine collection of Imperial and Ottoman utensils like treasuries, relics, caftans and sultan portraits.

After seeing where the Ottoman sultans had their residence, we will visit the Basilica Cistern which is the biggest cistern of Istanbul from byzantine period. The Basilica was built in 532. Between 1985-1987 it was cleaned and restored to open as a museum. Roof was supported by 336 marble column, each 9 meters high.

Our last stop will be the Grand Bazaar. It's one of the oldest and largest covered markets of the world. It is a store house of life with 61 covered streets and more than 3000 covered stores offering almost anything and everything you need. The Grand Bazaar is a part of the walled city of Istanbul. The bazaar was constructed during 1455-1461. This market is a place filled with life, with dazzling lights and the noise of life within the walls of traditional Turkish architecture.
