It was used as a church for 916 years and as a mosque for 481 years, In 1934, by the order of Mustafa Kemal Ataturk it was converted into a museum, and since it is open to visitors. Next; Topkapi Palace; As well as being the imperial residence of the Sultan, the palace was also the seat of government for the ottoman empire. It housed the Ottoman sultans for nearly 400 years until the Dolmabahçe palace was built. In 1924 it was converted into a museum. Today it is famous with harem, royal treasury, and holy relics sections.
Continue to with Hippodrome; Built by the Roman Emperor Septimus Severus in 203AD, during the Roman period hippodrome was the civil center for the people of the city where once 100,000 spectators could be held.

Next, Blue Mosque; Built by the Ottoman Sultan Ahmet I in the year 1616, it is located opposite the Hagia Sophia. Blue mosque today is one of the most famous landmarks of the old city with its famous six minarets and magnificent dome. Although it is officially called Sultanahmet Mosque, the name Blue Mosque was given to it by the visitors because of the amazing blue tiles decorating the interior walls. Next, Grand Bazaar; With 18 entrances and more than 4000 shops, it is one of the greatest bazaars in the world. It was built between 1455-1461 by Sultan Mehmet the Conqueror.

Fantastic Istanbul

The Tour with Met was very informative, well structured, and fun. We appreciated Met's way of explaining complex historical events or cultural details in a very easy way. Thank you ....more

The Tour with Met was very informative, well structured, and fun.

We appreciated Met's way of explaining complex historical events or cultural details in a very easy way.

Thank you again for this.

I recommend to slightly shorten the tour (as it seems to be longer than the mentioned 7 h) by reducing the nr.

of shops or shopping opportunities in the afternoon.

Overall I didn't expect to learn so many new things on my 2nd visit of Topkapi, Aya Sophia or the Blue Mosque.

less....
