Description & Program: Upon our pick up from the hotel firstly we visit Hagia Sophia Museum. Built in the 6th century AD and then converted in a mosque in 1453 it was the first large domed building of the world and religious focal point of the Orthodox Church for 1000 years. We learn its history from our expert local guide and have a look at its unique decoration from Byzantine and Turkish periods. Unlike of most city tours, our guide will also take us to the upper galleries. We enjoy a short walk from here across to Blue Mosque which owes its fame to the exquisite blue Iznik Tiles adorning its interior walls. Hippodrome is next to here. Here we see an Egyptian Obelisk and the Snake Column from ancient Roman Empire which used to promote regional power during horse chariots races.
