Full description
We begin with a brief visit to the 17th-century Spice Bazaar, one of Istanbul’s most colorful and popular attractions. The building is part of the Yenj Mosque and was completed in 1660. Next, we will take a cruise through the Bosphorus, also known as Istanbul Strait, which is the only passage between the Mediterranean and the Black seas. It also marks the dividing line between Europe and Asia. This exciting cruise takes you through its beautiful shores and offers you an amazing view of the massive Rumeli Hisari. This fortress was built by Fatih the Conqueror in just three months as he prepared to take Istanbul. The magnificent Bosphorus Bridge, finished in 1973, is one of the two bridges that connect Europe and Asia. The cruise offers a unique way to view this impressive suspension bridge from the water. We will also pass by the 620 historic waterfront mansions built by the elite of the Ottoman Empire in the 19th century. The beautiful palaces and hunting lodges of the Sultan are also along the way.
