join us to this classic, regular sightseeing in Istanbul and discover city's highlights, including Saint Sophia, Blue Mosque, the Roman Ippodrome and a stroll to the Grand Bazaar

This regular highlight-tour takes you to the most beloved and visited venues of Istanbul. The first stop is appointed in Saint Sophia, the Byzantine cathedral which was also used as a mosque for hundreds of years. The church was built during the time of Emperor Ioustinianos and was the greatest Orthodox Temple during the acme of Byzantine Empire.
Afterwards, you will visit the Sultanahmet Imperial mosque – still operating for the Muslims. The Mosque is also named Blue Mosque due to the color of the tiles covering the exterior.
Following, you will visit the Hippodrome located right next to the Mosque. The Hippodrome was constructed during the Byzantine times and hosted thousands of horse races. There are three important monuments placed along the Hippodrome, which were transferred there from the corners of the Empire:  Obelisk of Theodosius, the bronze Serpentine Column and the Column of Constantine.
After your sightseeing, you will have the opportunity to buy souvenirs and typical Turkish products in the Grand Cover Bazaar, built during the 15th century. The Bazaar hosts hundreds of shops and is buzzing full life and people.
