Istanbul Half Day

€ 400.00

Many years of difference of arts and cultures made the past and the present of this beautiful city.

Your guide will meet you in front of the Istanbul port passenger Terminal. You will be driven along the old city walls and under the ancient Roman aqueduct on the way to St Sophia, the splendid Church of Divine Wisdom, built in the 4th century BC. At the time St Sophia's dome was the largest in the world. After it had been looted and damaged on several occasions, the building was converted into a mosque, but it eventually fell into disrepair. The mosaics were uncovered in the 1900s and the church became a Byzantine-Ottoman museum. Your next stop is at the Hipodrome. Nearby is the Blue Mosque, named for its interior adorned with magnificent Iznik tiles. Before returning to the port you will also be given an opportunity to do your shopping at the Grand Bazaar.
