Built facing the Golden Horn, this 17th century market was originally an extension of the New Mosque and financed by a tax paid on the sale of Egyptian goods. Sought after for its exotic spices and oils from the Orient, today dried fruits, caviar, and Turkish delight are available as well, and at prices generally lower than in the more famous Grand Bazaar. The market is a central hub of commercial activity for the area, while the surrounding streets are full of local craftspeople and traders who offer, in addition to Turkish coffee and spices, a great selection of cheeses and olives.

Blue Mosque

Opulent domes and balconied minarets soar upwards at the Blue Mosque, one of Istanbul’s most striking landmarks. Built during the reign of Sultan Ahmet I (1603-1617), it is Islam's answer to Hagia Sophia, which it faces across a well-tended square. To this day, the Blue Mosque remains the symbol and centre of religious events in the city and is Istanbul's only mosque with six minarets, as opposed to the four of an imperial Ottoman mosque or two of a traditional neighbourhood mosque. The name of the mosque is derived from the wealth of priceless blue Iznik tiles that dominate its interior and decorate the vast central dome designed to lift all eyes heavenward.

Topkapi Palace

Home to the Ottoman sultans and their court for over 300 years, building of the Topkapi Palace was commissioned by Mehmet the Conqueror, the 23-year-old sultan who captured Constantinople in 1453, making it the capital of the Ottoman Empire and rechristening it Istanbul. The palace was constructed between 1459 and 1478 and rapidly grew to become a sprawling complex of elaborate living quarters and administrative offices. The layout of the palace consists a series of interconnected courtyards that progress inwards, becoming increasingly more secluded and private.

Basilica Cistern

A forest of over 300 columns stands in several feet of water which is home to a large school of blind carp and over which wooden walkways have been constructed.
