We will pick you up about 08:30 am for the tour (**only Old City and Taksim area with free pick up service) . The first stop is Yedikule Dungeons located within the city walls of Constantinople, once used as a prison and execution site for the young princes.Driving along the city walls will end at one of the oldest and most important churches in the city – The Church of Chora – representing fascinating wall paintings which tell the life of Christ in an historical order. Even though the building itself being small, the meaning was great for Byzantines as being founded at the borders of the city and welcoming the visitors. Today the environment is restored and this is a good place to spend time with local artisans and wooden houses. After the church, we will have a tea-coffee break at one of the most splendid spots of Istanbul with a beautiful view over the Golden Horn – Pierre Loti Hill. The place inspired the French Poet Mr Pierre Loti who gave the spot her name. You will again start drive but that time along the shores of Golden Horn through the towns Fener and Balat which are the old Greek and Jewish living sites. Fener Orthodox Patriarchate is located in the area as well where you will have a stop for the visit. The journey will end by driving along the Golden Horn Bridge in Sultanahmet about 12.00 noon.
