Discover Istanbul on this full-day guided tour and learn its history through its top sites (and hidden ones too): The Hippodrome, The Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace Museum and more.
After meeting your tour guide next to German Fountain (Alman Cesmesi) which is located in Hippodrome Square, you'll learn where the chariot races were held during the Roman Empire at the Hippodrome. Then, at the Blue Mosque, built in the early 1600s for Sultan Ahmet I, see the blue shade of the 27.000 pieces of Iznik quartz tiles.
Next, at Hagia Sophia explore the famed structure built by emperor Justinian, which played a very important role in both the Christian and Islamic world. Topkapi Palace presents an imperial residence of Ottoman sultans, plus a visit to the Grand Bazaar brings you the excitement of the largest and oldest covered markets in the world with over 4,000 shops.
