Itinerary

Anyone who stay in Istanbul welcome to Daily Edirne Tour. Meet your tour guide at the hotel lobby than we drive to Edirne from Istanbul. It will take about 2:30 hours. Upon arrival we will visit Selimiye Mosque. The Selimiye Mosque (Turkish: Selimiye Camii) is an Ottoman imperial mosque, which is located in the city of Edirne (formerly Adrianople), Turkey. The mosque was commissioned by Sultan Selim II, and was built by the imperial architect Mimar Sinan between 1568 and 1575.It was considered by Sinan to be his masterpiece and is one of the highest achievements of Islamic architecture. After complete visiting Selimiye Mosque we will take you to Ali Pasha Bazaar. The bazaar is named after the Grand Vizier Hersekzade Semiz Ali Pasha who performed this function during the reign of Sultan Suleiman the Magnificent. Unfortunately, Ali Pasha died four years before the bazaar was erected, so he could not appreciate the final effect. There are two things we can learn about Ali Pasha just by studying his full name. 'Hersekzade' means that he was born in Herzegovina (tr. Hersek) in the Balkans, then the part of the Ottoman Empire. Born as Stjepan Hercegović, he was taken hostage by the Ottomans, converted to Islam and entered the service of the Imperial Court. He was the first one of the long and successful line of aristocrats of Balkan origins at the Sublime Porte. Moreover, his nickname 'Semiz' means very fat and tall so he must have made his presence felt. Like other Ottoman period dignitaries, he was the sponsor of many public buildings, not only in Istanbul but also in other cities of the Empire. For Selimiye Mosque and Ali Pasha Bazaar it will be take about 1.30 hours. After visiting Selimiye Mosque and Bazaar we will take you Clock Tower and Castle. Visit to them take about 1 hour. The final program is Uzun Kopru (Long Bridge) to visit Long Bridge take about 1 hour. Uzunköprü is a town in Edirne Province in Turkey. It is named after a historical stone bridge, claimed to be the world's longest, on the Ergene River. It is a strategically important border town, located on the routes connecting Turkey to the Balkans and Europe.After the tour, transfer back Your Hotel.
