Relax your body after a day of exploring the magical Old City of Istanbul! Discover the rich hybrid of two distinct cultures, Ottoman and Byzantine Empires.
Old City is a magical place where remaining treasures of two great empires, Ottoman and Byzantine, combines together.
This tour will explore the places through which you can explore this enchanting combination.
Hagia Sophia, originally a church that is built three times in its history. Lastly, it was built during Emperor Justinian’s reign and had reached to present day with some renovations. After the conquest of Istanbul, it has been converted into a mosque, now it is being used as a museum. There you can see the blend of these two cultures in a single building. Its four minarets were added by four different Ottoman Sultans.
Neighbor to St. Sophia, you’ll be seeing Sultan Ahmet Mosque, or mostly known as the Blue Mosque due to its famous blue Iznik tiles. It has six minarets in total, according to a myth it is by accident: Sultan asked for gold (in Turkish Altın) minarets, but the architect misunderstood it as six (in Turkish Altı), thus he built all six of them.
Next to the Blue Mosque, you’ll be seeing Hippodrome, or the remaining of it since Byzantine times. Now you can see the Serpentine Column, Obelisk of Theodosius and German Fountain of Wilhelm II within the same area.
Then you’ll be moving towards Grand Bazaar, to fill your packs with many beautiful things for yourself and your loved ones!
After having your lunch at a local Turkish restaurant, you’ll have a glimpse into Ottoman Family residence, seeing the imperial treasury, sacred Islamic relics of Prophet Mohammed, the kitchen, porcelain and weapon collections.
