Itinerary

1 .Day | ISTANBUL, ON THE PATH OF SILK ROAD

Welcome to the meeting point of two continents, melting pots of cultures and crossing point of trade ways. After having rest, start doing more like a local person does.

2 .Day | OLD CITY S HISTORICAL BAZAARS

All civilizations created their own style of trade. The city centers, like the old Hippodrome, were collecting people. The ancient imperial palace of Byzantines and the most spectacular religious building Hagia Sophia was standing there. After the conquest, Ottomans built their own palaces Topkapi and Blue Mosque at the same square called today Sultan Ahmet. Same land was also rebuilt with Turkish Bath Hurrem Sultan, medresa, hospital, kitchen, and grand vizier Ibrahim Pasha Palace. Just close your eyes and imagine you are back in the Ottoman period, surrounded by cavaliers and corps shopping at Arasta Bazaar. In the afternoon you will get lost in the maze of Grand Bazaar with its 22 entrances and over 4,000 shops. Finally, we will reach Spice Bazaar before dark falls.

3 .Day | ISTANBUL, VIEW FROM ALL SIDES: EUROPE, ASIA

Our 1st stop will be in Asia; Camlica Hill has a panoramic view of the European part. On the way back, we will stop by “middle village” Ortakoy to have the opposite view over Asia. Benches of Ortakoy are well organised and you can find hand made bijouteries or other artistic products there. Our next stop is Taksim and we will walk through Istiklal Street to Galata Tower in the end. The most famous street of shopping and strolling in Istanbul has echoes in other countries. It also has some unique side streets and small pasaj (arcades).

4 .Day | MODERN CITY SHOPS

Our thematic tour will start in the old quarter Fatih. After it became the capital of the Ottoman Empire, many bazaars, shops, mosques, and other civilization examples raised there. Wednesdays there is an open market bazaar. You can find clothing with a wide range of quality. In the afternoon we will go to one of the shopping mall nearby where children will have some fun also.

Türkiye is a textile country that produces for the World. Most shops have their production in Istanbul or nearby. Enjoy the opportunity to buy directly from the producer.

Either you can go shopping on your own or let us take you to some other complexes to have fun and shop together.
