Full Description

Hagia Sophia is probably Istanbul's best-known landmark. The soaring domes, peach colouring and minarets rise above the Old City attracting travellers from all over the world to come and learn from its 1500 year history. It was the heart of Byzantium and is the oldest building in the Sultanahmet area. The current structure is actually the third to be built on this site, as the previous two were destroyed by fire and riots. 

There are centuries of Christian and Islamic history to discover with icons of both religions appearing side by side. There are also other interesting treasures to see including Viking alphabets, the Tomb of Princes, the "weeping" or "crying" column and more. Don't miss out on your guided tour of the Hagia Sophia!

It was the first place that i wanted to see in Istanbul. We chose a hotel nearby Saint Sophia. Walked just afew minutes to meeting point. Due to there are 2 Big Bus Stations we first mixed the meeting point than my husband realised their flag. Thanks to our guide not to make us lived a disappointment.

I directly found my guide on meeting point. Just waited until tour time approximately 5-10 minutes. And on time we moved to entrance. Due to crowded it took 7-8 minutes to enter.

Ahaha. There was only my family to join this tour and my 2 neighbours from my hotel. I knew that couple just 1 day before tour date. Nearly was a private tour on that day. :)
