What You'll Do

  • See Constantine's Column, the Mausoleum of Ottoman Sultans, and the Çemberlitas
Overview
The Divan Yolu is an ancient road scattered with a diversity of historical and architectural relics from the Ottoman, Roman, and Byzantine eras. Explore this culturally rich area led by an expert English-speaking guide.
What to Expect
During the Ottoman Empire, the Divan Yolu was the road to the Imperial Council, and under the Byzantines it was the Mese Street, the main boulevard leading from the city center to the Golden Gate, which met with the Via Ignatia, the road to Rome.

Walk along the well-trodden road yourself and learn about the historic significance of the Divan Yolu on this half-day walk. Led by an expert English-speaking guide, see some of the most important sites in the city.

Like Istanbul itself, the road is a living collage of historical influences and styles. See Roman relics, Ottoman memorials, and Byzantine ruins all concentrated in a short space of one another.

The walk starts at the beginning of Divan Yolu by the tall marble shaft known as the Milion. Continue down and see the famous Mausoleums of the Ottoman sultans. Marvel at the intricate mosques. See and hear about the Roman forum and pass Byzantine monuments such as Çemberlitas. You will also visit the remains of the Theodosian Arc d’'Triumph.
