Description

At the start of your tour, you will be picked up from your accommodation and then be transported by coach to the Little Hagia Sophia. For thousands of years, the church of St. Sergius and St. Bacchus offered Byzantine prayers that seek the help of the saints. However, due to the conquest of Constantinople, a lot of changes have occurred to Byzantine buildings. The church was then turned into a mosque now known as Little Hagia Sophia. Although their church is no longer in existence, the memories and the image of holiness and unwavering faith of Saint Sergius and Saint Bacchus persist across the centuries.

Visit the Suleymaniye Mosque, the most ambitious architectural piece in the Ottoman Empire history. This mosque is considered the world's greatest stone building of the Ottoman Empire. Mimar Sinan, the architect of the mosque complex, included four schools, a bath, hamam, caravanserai, a hospital, a dining room, and a tomb that became Sultan Suleiman's final resting place.

Afterward, visit the Grand Bazaar, one of the largest and oldest covered markets in the world, consisting of 5,000 stores over 58 streets and serving a quarter of a million visitors every day. The market continues to sell many of the goods that attracted many travelers and merchants from around the world, including oriental rugs, crystals, diamonds, jewelry, and glass. Have a fun time visiting different shops with a unique atmosphere of the East.

At the end of your tour, you will be transported back to your accommodation.
