After breakfast we will embark on a tour of Istanbul. Together we will visit Hagia Sophia (often referred to as the 8th wonder of the World), the Blue Mosque, the Hippodrome and Basilica Cistern. Cisterna Basilica is the largest of several hundred ancient cisterns that lie beneath the city of Istanbul. After lunch (not included) at a local restaurant we will continue to Grand Bazaar, one of the largest and oldest covered bazaars in the World. From here we will have a nice walk from here to the Spice Market and then on to old Ottoman inns.
