Full Description

Buyukada, literally “Big Island” in Turkish, is the original Princes' Island, and the largest and most populated of the Princes’ Islands.

Buyukada was used as an exile destination and as a monastery region during the Byzantine Christian period. During the Byzantium history the island was also used as a prison for those who were opposing the Emperor. It was Buyukada where the Byzantine empresses Irene and Zoe and Anna Dalassena were sent on exile. After his deportation from the Soviet Union in February 1929, Leon Trotsky also stayed for four years on Buyukada. We see mansions, palaces, churches, convents and much more...

At the end of the tour we will take the ferry and be back to city and then drive back to your hotel.
