Begin your adventure at the Roman Hippodrome, where chariot races were organised by the Romans and Byzantines. The Blue Mosque, the only mosque with six minarets, and its surroundings will be our next place to visit. Next, you will see the German Fountain, a gift Kaiser Wilhelm II, and learn of his love of the orient. Hagia Sophia, the Church of Divine Wisdom, is the highlight of this day. Following the visits your guide will take you the Grand Bazaar for demonstrations of Turkish Handicrafts. The Topkap? Museum is the big one...the most important museum of Turkey and the Balkan peninsula. It is an incomparably rich treasure-chest, brimming with artifacts of historical importance. See the first, second, third and fourth courtyards; the Audience Hall, Divan, the high court, historical kitchens, royal stables, the treasury, gardens, kiosks… For perhaps the best insight into Ottoman history, art and culture simply come direct to the first courtyard of this amazing palace. Then we’ll admire Hagia Irene Church from the outside. Our final place of interest is the Church of Sergius and Bacchus, today known as the Petite Hagia Sophia Mosque. To see these things with a great guide...well, you will never be quite the same again.
