Full description
Discover the ancient city of Istanbul, and begin your half-day afternoon tour with a walk at Yedikule Fortress, a dungeon where many diplomats and rebels were imprisoned during the Ottoman Empire. Here, you'll discover a bloody history of conquest, and your guide will help explain to you the more interesting tales from Yedikule's gruesome past.
