The next stop will be at the Egyptian Bazaar which is the second largest market in Istanbul. This bazaar is near Eminonu and its doors are bursting with oriental sweets and an enormous variety of herbs and spices imported from all over the world. The air in this exotic bazaar is filled with the oriental aromas of cinnamon, cardamom, ginger, saffron and Turkish coffee. Come and enjoy a pleasant walk that features Turkish hospitality and eastern traditions that will add a special beauty to your holiday and create treasured memories.

Follow your guide to the Rustem Pasha Mosque (1550-1561) which is an elegant building designed by Mimar Sinan on the orders of Rustem Pasha. It was completed after his death by his wife Mihrimah. Sinan wanted the construction to reflect its creator’s character and did so with features including many windows, lots of light, marble columns and Iznik tiles. The mosque survived the difficulties of the ensuing centuries and has become a symbol of loyalty to Istanbul just as the Grand Vizier Rustem Pasha once loyally served his sultan. Admire the great time with Istanbul and then back by coach to your accommodation.
