Byzantine Relics Tour

Day 1

After breakfast at the hotel we pick you up from your hotel by our coach and professional guide to Sultanahmet square.

We start tour at Hippodrome, built by the Romans in about 200 AD and originally used for chariot racing and other public events, and the stadium surrounding the track held over 100,000 people. The oldest remaining column is called the Egyptian Obelisk, which was built in Egypt in 1500 BC. Next spiral Serpentine Column, dating back to 479 BC. was brought to Istanbul from Delphi.

Blue Mosque is probably Istanbul's most famous landmark, and was built by some of the same stone masons who helped construct the Taj Mahal in India. Only mosque with six minarets! Inside is cascading with domes, 250 windows and 20,000 amazing Iznik blue tiles.

Hagia Sophia is an architectural intelligence and the first masterpiece in Byzantine architecture was completed in 537 AD. It has been the largest cathedral for 1000 years until the Seville Cathedral was built. When you enter Hagia Sophia, the vastness of the 105-foot dome towering 184 feet overhead is astounding, especially given that the building was constructed 1500 years ago!

Tour ends at noon time, you can drive back to your hotel or continue spending your leisurely time around.

** St Sophia Museum is closed on Mondays.
