Description

Istanbul is home to many magnificent buildings and memorials that harken back to its Ottoman Era history, including the magnificent Süleymaniye Mosque. Explore this complex—one of the city's best-known landmarks—then take a drive through the historic Vefa neighborhood.

After you're picked up from your hotel, head to Istanbul's Third Hill and see the Süleymaniye Mosque, which was built under the guidance of Ottoman architectural genius Mimar Sinan. Completed in 1557, the mosque is the largest mosque in the city and features striking examples of Ottoman architecture.

Your tour covers the historical districts from Süleymaniye all the way to Vefa, a neighborhood rich in monuments from both the Byzantine and Ottoman eras. Your guide shares stories about the area's prominent figures and stunning building design as you wander through the district's meandering streets. Stop into a café for a glass of boza, a traditional beverage made from fermented grains, before ending your tour with drop-off back at your hotel.
