Full description
Explore Istanbul's rich history and magnificent architecture as you visit the Hippodrome, the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, Bosphorus and the Grand Bazaar on a full-day guided tour. Early in the Morning the driver will pick you up from your hotel in Kusadasi or Izmir and transfer to Izmir Adnan Menderes Airport. Check in to your flight yourself and fly on your own. Upon arrival in Istanbul, the guide will meet you at the exit gate of the arrival terminal then drive to the historical peninsula of Istanbul. Begin your full-day tour at the Hippodrome which was once the site of chariot races during the Roman and Byzantine era. See the ancient monuments which stand here to this day, such as the Obelisk of the Theodosius, the Serpentine Column, and the Column of Constantine. Continue to the Blue Mosque. Famous for its beautiful courtyard and impressive minarets, the mosque gets its nickname from the splendid blue tiles that cover its interior walls and is probably the most photographed site in Istanbul. The tour continues with a visit to Topkapi Palace, home to the Sultans of the Ottoman Empire. Today Topkapi Palace is a spectacular museum which houses the Muslim world’s holiest relics, including the cloak and sword of the Prophet Mohammed. After a short break for lunch, the next venue is the Hagia Sophia, one of the worlds architectural gems. An ancient basilica dating back to the 4th century, the Hagia Sophia stood as the Cathedral of Constantinople for over a thousand years before being converted into a mosque in 1453; today it serves as a museum attracting people from all over the world. Istanbul's famous Grand Bazaar, the largest and the oldest covered marketplace in the world, where you may find all kind of gifts, leather, clothing, rugs, antiques, and jewelry in an authentic Oriental atmosphere. After exploring the historical peninsula, join a cruise along the Bosphorus strait between Europe and Asia gazing at famous palaces, waterfront houses, and mosques. At the end of the tour, you will be transferred to Istanbul airport for the evening flight to Izmir and from there you will be driven to your hotel in Izmir or Kusadasi.

Diesen Ausflug kann ich zu 100 % empfehlen, es ist zwar stressig aber top organisiert. Unser Tourguide in Istanbul Anil war einfach der Beste. Gokhan, der uns alles organisiert hat, war vorher immer da, wenn wir etwas gebraucht haben. Um sich einen Überblick über Istanbul zu verschaffen ist der Ausflug einfach top!!
