Day 2) The legends of history & the greatness of two empires

You will start your tour with a pick-up from your accommodation and then travel by coach to Sultanahmet. You will meet your guide and make your first stop at the Topkapi Palace. The palace allows you to touch the history of the whole empire and opens the veil of secrecy on the mysterious East. It was here that 25 sultans lived and ruled; a dynasty was established, reached its height of greatness and declined; it saw the heart of Islam; plots were hatched; and the eyes of Europe, Asia and Africa were turned throughout three centuries.

The tour will be continued by visiting the Blue Mosque. Admire a special time by walking in the heart of historical part of Istanbul and get some great shots of old city.

After then enjoy your lunch in a cozy cafe in Sultanahmet.

Every visit to Istanbul is exciting and unique in its own way especially because the visitor always has the opportunity to touch history. As you stroll along the Hippodrome that features historical monuments and where great events took place, you will become acquainted with Istanbul’s rich Byzantine history.

Next stop will be Hagia Sophia. It is a reminder of the fall of Constantinople, a painful thousand year history and is a symbol of the unbreakable faith of millions. It is here that holy relics brought from all over the world inspired awe; that hatred and jealousy destroyed precious mosaics; that the faith was defended; and priceless icons were ruined. As you walk across the worn flagstones of this magnificent building you will feel its one and a half thousand year history.

Continue your walk to The Basilica Cistern, an underground reservoir completed in 532 to channel water from the Valencia aqueduct. Enjoy the atmosphere by listening your guide and do not forget to miss a chance getting the great shots of old city. You will finish your tour with a drop-off at your accommodation.
