Description

We will start our tour at 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 walk two minutes to the Blue Mosque which is just next to the Hippodrome and which is equally known as the Sultan Ahmed Mosque. This mosque 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 go to the Hagia Sophia (Ayasofya in Turkish) served for both Christianity and Islam in different times. Back in 537 when it was first built, it was since then used as an Eastern Orthodox Church till 1453.

After seeing where the Ottoman Sultans lived we visit the Basilica Cistern which is the biggest cistern of Istanbul from byzantine period. It 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.

Then we will continue with the famous Grand Bazaar that is 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.

And we finish our tour with the Spice Market. There we discover the smelly world of Spices and delights. In the Spice market you can find any kind of spices and delights not only from Turkey but also from other countries. You will realize that there are many shops that they are selling caviar. Beside the spice shops you will see some jewelry and souvenir shops, too.
