Galata: The Old Harbour Area Walk
This tour includes Underground Mosque, Russian Chuches on the Roof, Kılıç Ali Paşa Complex, Turkish Orthodox Patriarchal Church and Arap Camii.
Historical records show that a settlement existed on the northern shore of the Golden Horn since the time of Christ. The area was inhabited in the time of Emperor Justinian in the mid-6th century. Big chains were put at the entrance of Golden Horn to avoid sudden attacks from outside. We see the building where these chains were tightened. What else do we see? You cannot even imagine how rich with history the area is. If we say: Churches on top of apartment buildings, will it sound unreal?! Or Underground Mosques!! If we say 'We will show you Gothic Church' that would be some-thing; but what if your guide shows you a Gothic Mosque! These and more will be part of an outstanding adventure by the shores of Galata.
Price includes: Guiding, transportation and entrance fees.
This tour is a half day -afternoon- tour.
You will meet with the guide at the lobby of your hotel.
