Itinerary

You will be picked up at 09:00 am from your hotel for the full-day tour through the oldest parts of Istanbul.

HAGIA SOPHIA MOSQUE: This ancient basilica was built by Justinianus I in the 4th century, and it stays as one of the most fascinating architectural marvels of all time. It was built to serve as a cathedral at first and it was the largest Christian church of the eastern Roman Empire. It was converted into a mosque under the Ottoman rule when Constantinople fell, then turned into a museum only to become a mosque once more.  


TOPKAPI PALACE: This great palace was actively used as the main residence of Ottoman sultans in the 15th and 16th centuries. It is home to the exquisite collection of crystals, various items made of silver, antique tile arts, clothes worn by the sultans and their families, the famous jewels of the Imperial Treasury, Spoonmaker's Diamond and the Holy Mantle; a relic which is believed to belong to the Prophet Mohammed.

SULTANAHMET MOSQUE: Built in the 16th century by architect Sedefkar Mehmed Agha, this grand structure is known as the BLUE MOSQUE because of the magnificent hue of blue Iznik tiles which cover its inner walls.

SULTANAHMET SQUARE: Centuries ago, chariot races and many other activities were a common occurrence in the ancient hippodrome which now lays in the center of Sultanahmet Square, with the two major monuments; the Obelisk of Theodosius and the Serpentine Column. The Obelisk of Theodosius is one of the twenty nine Egyptian obelisks in the world, which makes it a rare sight to see. 


Murtis Tour will then take you to the GRAND SPICE BAZAAR. In this labyrinth of streets and passages, there are more than 4,000 shops with each trade having its own special area: the goldsmiths' street, the carpet sellers, Turkish arts and crafts such as hand-painted ceramic plates, hand-honed copperware, brassware and trays, water ewers, onyx-ware, and meerschaum pipes.

After your tour, you will be brought back to your hotel. 

We hope that your tour proves to be a pleasant and memorable one.
