We begin with one of Istanbul's most important highlights, the Hagia Sophia, and admire one of the worlds great architectural gems. The ancient Basilica dates back to the 4th century, and was the world’s largest cathedral for over 1,000 years. Today, it has been converted to a museum. Look at impressive features, such as the dome and minarets, as well as beautiful mosaics, paintings, and sculptures.

We then take you to possibly the most visited sight in Istanbul, the Blue Mosque.
Famous for its beautiful courtyard, and 6 impressive minarets, the mosque was completed in 1616, and takes its name from the splendid blue Iznik tiles that adorn its interior walls.
Continue to the ancient Hippodrome, and explore the ruins that once hosted chariot races. Admire the 3 ancient monuments of the Obelisk of Theodosius, the Serpentine Column, and the Column of Constantine.
