See the former heart of the city dating back to the time when Istanbul was still Constantinople at the Roman Hippodrome. Stand in awe at the spectacular Blue Mosque and the no less impressive Byzantine Church St. Sophia.|
Enjoy lunch at a traditional Turkish kebab restaurant before getting a 'taste' of the life of the rulers of the Great Ottoman Empire at Topkapi Palace. A relaxed stroll over the Grand Bazaar concludes your tour. With 4,000 tiny shops full of handmade carpets, jewellery, leather goods and souvenirs it will be hard to resist the haggling!
