Day 2

We start our day by visiting Topkapi Palace, the home of the Ottoman Sultans between the 16th and 19th centuries. In its Treasury section, we will have the opportunity to see the ‘Sultans’ priceless jewelry, the most important of which is the 99-carat diamond and the thrones covered with gold and precious gems. One of the most important parts of the palace is the famous Harem, where we will discover the secluded private life of the Ottoman dynasty. As we leave Topkapi Palace, we drop in on the Aya Irini, which is older even than the Hagia Sophia, our next stop. A true wonder of the world, the architecture, design, and historical significance of the Hagia Sophia makes it one of the most important stops on this tour. After this visit, we will make our way to Constantine the Great’s Hippodrome, which in its heyday had a seating capacity of 100,000. Next to the Hippodrome is the Blue Mosque with its magnificent 6 minarets, our next stop. We then visit the Underground Cistern (Basilica Cistern), one of the most interesting structures of Byzantium. We wrap up our tour with the Grand Bazaar, the oldest and biggest covered mall in the modern world.
