90.00

Highlights: Hagia Sophia, Hippodrome, German Fountain, Blue Mosque, Grand Bazaar, Topkapı Palace, Caferağa Medrese, Soğukçeşme Street, Hagia Irene Church (From Outside)

 

This tour is a must in Istanbul. You will begin the day with the Roman Hippodrome, where the chariot races were organized by the Romans and Byzantines. Blue Mosque-the only mosque with six minarets and its surroundings will be our next place to visit. Next, you will see the German Fountain - a gift of Kaiser Wilhelm 2.  and listen the stories of his liaison with the orient. Hagia Sophia - The Church of Divine Wisdom is the highlight of this day. Following the visits your guide will take you the Grand Bazaar for demonstration of Turkish Handicrafts. Topkapı Museum is the big one...the most important museum of  Turkey and the Balkan Peninsula. It is an incomparably rich treasure-chest, brimming with things of historical importance. First, second, third and fourth courtyards; the Audience Hall, Divan-the High Court, Historical Kitchens, Royal Stables, the Treasury, gardens, kiosks… Probably the best commentary on Ottoman History, art and its culture is simply to come direct to the First Courtyard of this amazing Palace. Next place to see is Hagia Irene Church (from outside). Our final places of interest are Caferağa Medrese and Soğukçeşme Street. To see these things with a great guide...well, you will never be quite the same again.
