Day 2Istanbul Old City Tour

Hagia Sophia: It was built by the Byzantine Emperor Justinian in 532-537 in the old city center of Istanbul’s historical peninsula. From the Golden Age of Byzantine, this once-Christian church is one of the most extraordinary buildings in the history of architecture. It played a very important role in the Byzantine Empire and later as a mosque in the Ottoman Empire. The Word ‘Hagia’ in Greek means Divine and ‘Sophia’ means ‘Wisdom’.Divine Wisdom is one of the attributes of Jesus Christ and his church is devoted to his divine wisdom.

Blue Mosque: The Blue Mosque is one of the most prominent landmarks of Istanbul. The Sultan Ahmet Mosque was built by the Ottoman Sultan Ahmed I in 1609-1617 on the historical peninsula in Istanbul, by the architect Sedefkâr Mehmed Ağa. It is very impressive with its beautiful domes and semidomes, nice courtyards, and unique six slender minarets in the world.

Hippodrome and Obelisks: This old square is located in front of the Blue Mosque and covers the site of the ancient Hippodrome. It was one of the most famous areas in Byzantine.

Grand Bazaar: The oldest and the largest covered marketplace in the world is situated in the center of Istanbul. It was built by Fatih Sultan Mehmet in 1460. It is located in 30 700 square meters. It has got over 4000 shops, 24 gates, 5 mosques, 7 foundations, 1 school, 7 draws well. Break time for Lunch. (1 hour free time )

Topkapı Palaces: Topkapı Palace was built by Fatih Sultan Mehmed in 1478. Topkapi Palace was more than just the private residence of the Sultan and his court. It was the seat of the supreme executive and judiciary council. The Divan the training schools, and even mosques were at the service of the court. It was the official headquarters of the state and the official residence of the Ottoman sultans for about 380 years until Abdülmecit ordered the construction of Dolmabahçe Palace. The area of the palace is 80.000 sqm.

Day 3North of Cappadocia

On the first morning, domestic flight Istanbul-Cappadocia; in case you have chosen the bus, your arrival is set for early mourning. Upon arrival at your cave hotel in Goreme or Urgup, you will make the check-in and leave the luggage: a tour of the fantastic valleys of North Cappadocia awaits you…

The first attraction that you will encounter is the so-called “Three Beauties”, three natural towers of rock famous for their strange form, located in the central valleys of Cappadocia. The tour goes on by Urgup, a millennium urban center built inside caves of natural rocks. In the Red Valley, a little bit northern, you will get in touch with a Martian landscape full of volcanic red rocks, modeled through centuries by the natural agents…

One of the characteristics that make Cappadocia so special is its variety of landscapes and attractions: in the late mourning, before a well-deserved lunch, you will have a mini-trekking tour of the Sword Valley (Kiliclar Vadisi) until the open museum of Goreme, famous for its spectacular fresco-coloured churches inside the caves. The tour of the North Cappadocia goes on in the afternoon with the visit of the Devrent Valley and the Pasabag Valley, two incredible sites.

Day 4South of Cappadocia

The second day of the tour is dedicated to a complete tour of the southern part of Cappadocia. If you are interested, at dawn a spectacular adventure awaits you: the tour by air balloon.

The tour starts from the village of Mustafapasa (Mustafa Paşa), inhabited historically by Greek-ottomans, where you will have the opportunity to discover wonderful hand-made decorations related to the Ottoman Empire age. The tour of South Cappadocia goes on with the visit to the underground city of Kaymakli… For a taste, take a look at the video:

In the afternoon you will then visit the citadel of Ortahisar and the Pigeon Valley, places of historical and natural interest… On the way back to Goreme, take a stop at the Esentepe Passage, a hill by which you will have a breathtaking view of the Cappadocian Valleys and its curious city of rocks…

At the end of the tour – roughly at 6 of the evening – you will be brought back to the hotel. For those who have chosen the first option, in the evening there will be the bus for Istanbul; for the others, domestic flight in the following mourning.

Day 5Istanbul (Free Day)
