Full Description

Explore the best of Istanbul's Old City! First of all, tour the number one must-see, the Hagia Sophia Museum. The Hagia Sophia has over 1,500 years of Christian and Islamic history to share with you and the most stunning architecture to behold. 

Next, visit Topkapi Palace. Now a museum, Topkapi Palace was once the residence of the Ottoman Sultans and administrative headquarters of the Ottoman Empire for over 400 years. You'll see how the Sultan and his family lived, plus there's a Religious Relics chamber that contains ancient relics of Moses and the Prophet Muhammad. It's an amazing collection!

The next incredible must-see of the Old City is the Basilica Cistern. Step down into the darkness and be amazed by the size of the huge cavern. It's hard to believe such a beautiful space was just used to store water for the Great Palace and the city! It can store a staggering 80,000 cubic metres of water. There are also surprising treasures to be found there, for example, an unusual Medusa pillar base...but we'll let your tour guide tell you the story!

Finally, take a cruise along the Bosphorus and see other amazing attractions around the city including Dolmabahce Palace, Ortakoy Mosque, the Bosphorus Bridge and Rumeli Hisari Fortress.
