Program of The Day
We will sail through the very "soul" of Istanbul during our tour, at the place where two continents meet-the Asian and European parts. You will discover the Bosphorus Strait's extraordinary beauty - the sultan's palaces, picturesque bridges, and the extraordinary atmosphere of the city. We will pass by such sights as the City Walls of Constantinople, which are 5,630 meters long and were built to protect Constantinople from the barbarians under Emperor Theodosius II.
Our tour will also visit the famous Egyptian bazaar - the air here is full of cardamom, cinnamon, mint, and saffron-a real oriental market. The Egyptian Bazaar in Istanbul, is one of the largest bazaars in the city. After lunch, our tour will continue in the summer residence of the sultans themselves - in the Beylerbey Palace - a palace of the mid-XIX century.
Rumeli Hisar Fortress
Rumelihisar appeared in 1452 by order of Sultan Mahmed Fatih and took its place on the Bosphorus coast opposite the Anadoluhisar fortress, located on the Asian side. The two fortresses jointly controlled the ships entering the Bosphorus Strait and thereby “cut off” Constantinople from the Black Sea.
To admire the city as if it is in the palm of your hand will help us Chamlija Hill-this is the highest point of the Asian part of Istanbul, its height is 263 meters. On this hill, there is a cozy park. Chamlija Hill is one of the must-see attractions in Istanbul, and you will see it for yourself when you get to the observation deck.
The Beylerbey Palace is surrounded by a huge magnificent garden, which looks like a rich forest with beautiful terraces.
Non-working hours: Beylerbey Palace is closed on Mondays.
Important: On Mondays and Tuesdays, the Beylerbey Palace is replaced by the Chora Monastery (Kariye Museum).
