Good morning gorgeous Istanbul! Enjoy a sumptuous breakfast at your hotel and be prepared to continue your exploration of this enchanting city. Be ready to go on a guided city tour. You will see all the famous landmarks of this mysterious city – from the ancient Hippodrome, Sultanahmet Imperial Mosque to Hagia Sophia Grand Mosque. Istanbul is an eclectic mix of ancient and modern so much so that it is hard to tell which you like better. Next stop is Topkapi Palace where you can see exquisite collection of crystal, silver, and Chinese porcelain, robes worn by the sultans and their families, the famous jewels of the Imperial Treasury, miniatures, the Holy Mantle; enshrining relics of the Prophet Mohammed. After lunch, proceed to Grand Spice Bazaar. The markets are full of life and flavour and not surprisingly Istanbul has become the backdrop of many movies. The trams of Istanbul are an icon in themselves, the sight of which is best enjoyed over a cup of tea (unless you are riding in it of course). After, transfer to the hotel. Overnight in Istanbul.
