Take in the highlights of Istanbul, a truly enchanting city that is full of history, culture and intrigue at every turn, with this short and sweet tour of a city referred to as a “god’s gift” by the Ottomans. Once the seat of the powerful Ottoman Empire, today Istanbul is home to more than 14 million people and a diverse range of cultures.
Begin your tour by driving to the very heart of old Istanbul, Sultanahmet Square. Once the sporting and social centre of Constantinople with a huge horse racing circuit, it is now a beautiful square in the heart of the city that still houses the relics of the original structure. We’ll trail its key haunts and get a feel of the ambiance here that it is enveloped in, every single day. Marvel at architectural masterpieces such as the Blue Mosque, a striking visual spectacle with its blue-tiled interior, and Hagia Sophia, considered the epitome of Byzantine architecture, as your guide leads you to the city’s most spectacular landmarks before finishing the trip at Istanbul’s famous Grand Bazaar. Boasting over 4,000 shops and tiny cafés under its roof, it is believed to have the most individual stalls of any marketplace in the world.
