Half Day Istanbul : Golden Horn Tours

After breakfast at the hotel we pick you up from your hotel by our coach and professional guide to drive to old city area.

First you will meet City Walls of Constantinople area, that are series of stone walls that surrounded and protected the city of Constantinople since its founding as the capital of the Eastern Roman Empire by Constantine the Great. With numerous additions and modifications during their history, they are one of the greatest and most complex fortification systems ever built. The Castle of Seven Tower was used as prison all the time during both Byzantine and Ottoman Empire period.

''Topkapi Gate'' takes its name from the period when Fatih the Great Sultan placed the cannon there when he conquered the city.

We visit Chora Church, one of the Top-20 Museum Must-to-See in the World. This magnificent museum is an old Byzantine church, originally built in the 4th century as the ‘Church of the Holy Savior Outside the Walls’ or ‘in the Country’ (chora), it was indeed outside the walls built by Constantine the Great. It is unparalleled in Turkey, and some would claim the world, for its beautiful frescos and mosaics. In total there are about 50 priceless mosaic panels. Beginning in the exonarthex, the subjects of the mosaic panels fall into one of four themes, presented more or less in chronological order after the New Testament.

We visit Pierre Loti Hill by cable-car where you can catch the beautiful view of Istanbul. When you reach beautiful Pierre Loti Hill, you will have a rest time to drink with the nice view of Golden Horn.

We will see along the coast and see historical churches and buildings on the way. You are free in the afternoon.
