First, visit the Hippodrome Square, with its famous monuments: the Egyptian Obelisk, the Obelisk of Constantine, the Serpentine Column and the German Fountain.

Visit to the Blue Mosque, completed in 1616; A triumph of harmony, proportion and elegance. The mosque was part of a complex that also contained tombs, fountains, kitchens and a bathroom. Its colorful 260 windows allow the sun's rays to reach the interior of it, illuminating its interior in an unusual way. The blue Iznik slabs that cover its walls have given it its name.

Exterior visit to Hagia Sophia, the church of divine wisdom; The architectural wonder of all time. It was built during the reign of Emperor Justinian in 537 and was the largest church in Christendom until the conquest of Constantinople in 1453 by Sultan Mehmet II, who ordered the church to be converted into a mosque.

Visit to Topkapi Palace, the residence of the sultans for more than three centuries. The palace is located on a promontory that juts out between the Bosphorus and the Golden Horn. This location gives a magnificent view to visitors.

Being the imperial residence of the sultan, his court and his harem, it was at the same time the house of government during the Ottoman Empire. The palace was inhabited by 4000 people. Today, the Palace complex is a large museum with many rooms on display. Highlights include the Treasure Room, with its magnificent jewels, and the room containing sacred objects of Islam (including the beard and foot impression of the Prophet Muhammad).

Visit to the Cisterns of Yerebatan. Penetrating inside this cistern is an unforgettable experience. As it goes down, we can notice the growing moisture on our face. When we get down we can see the grandeur of this monument. Rows and rows of columns that come out of the water that still reaches this warehouse.

The lighting of the Cisterns has been tastefully placed, it reflects on the surface of the water while gently illuminating the columns. You have been acquiring different shades, so there is a kind of multicolored puzzle coming out of the water.

Free time for lunch in the Sultanahmet area.

Meeting point in Sultanahmet to go to the Grand Bazaar, the largest and oldest covered bazaar in Turkey, with more than 4000 shops. The best entry point is the Nuruosmaniye Gate, which is also the most attractive. Here you can get a variety of Turkish handicrafts and souvenirs.
