Hippodrome:

Once the site of a Roman Imperial Palace and later of horse-drawn chariot races. Here is located the famous obelisk from Egypt, a remarkable pink granite monument built 3,500 years ago by an Egyptian pharoah and brought to Byzantium in the 4th century.

Blue Mosque:

One of the most famous monuments in both the Turkish and Islamic worlds is the Sultan Ahmet Mosque (also known as the Blue Mosque). A superb creation in classical Turkish architectural style, it stands with 6 towering minarets and 260 windows that illuminate its vast main chamber which is decorated with more than 20,000 Iznik tiles.

St. Sophia:

One of the finest and largest architectural works of art in the world, Saint Sophia Museum was built in the 6th century by the Emperor Justinian, and was one of the largest basilicas in the Christian world. After the Ottoman conquest, it was converted to a mosque and is today one of the most magnificent museums in the world. Take a moment to linger here to absorb the serenity and admire the fine Byzantine mosaics.

Topkapi Palace:

Now, for what many people consider as one of the most unique places in the world, as well as being the world's largest and oldest Palace. It is the crown jewel of the Ottoman Empire, showing its treasures.
