While you are in Turkey, you should definitely buy a tour and visit the capital of the Ottoman Empire - fabulous Istanbul. This is a true Oriental dream: beautiful sights, temples and historical locations, noisy bazaars and unique flavor. The tour is an opportunity to visit the heart of the history of the Roman Empire and Byzantium, visit the most interesting museums and mosques.

The distance from Side to Istanbul is big, so the departure is scheduled for early morning. You will take a plane from Antalya Airport.

Features of the tour:

  • The program begins with the Topkapi Palace, a monumental building that also bears the second name “Cannon Gate”. Once it was the main residence of these Turkish sultans. If desired, you can visit the harem at low price.
  • Then the group goes to the Aya Sofia Museum (Hagia Sophia). This is a world-famous monument of Byzantine construction, a landmark building, which was built in 537 year. Imagine that for more than a thousand years the cathedral remained the largest Christian church! You will see the beauty of the cathedral with your own eyes.
  • At one o'clock the participants of the excursion will be able to have lunch and then visit the Hippodrome Square, which is located in the historical part of Istanbul. The square consists of two parts - the main one and the part between the Hagia Sophia and the Blue Mosque. Here, tourists are invited to look at the Byzantine obelisks and columns. From here it is convenient to travel to the Blue Mosque. Special ceramics and painting with blue and white paint, unusual patterns - all this combined with the light falling from more than two hundred and fifty windows, makes the color of the interior inside the mosque really blue.
