The best place to start off after touch down is the Sultanahmet Square. Today the Sultanahmet Square is an historical area that is filled with various iconic attractions and within close walking distance to other major landmarks, such as the Hagia Sophia and the Blue Mosque. In the past the square was the Hippodrome of Constantinople, the social and sporting center of the Byzantine Empire. Next visit will be the Topkapi Palace. The Topkapı Palace Museum, the Turkish Topkapı Sarayı Müzesi, exhibits the imperial collections of the Ottoman Empire and maintains an extensive collection of books and manuscripts in its library. It is housed in a palace complex that served as the administrative centre and residence of the imperial Ottoman court from about 1478 to 1856. It opened as a museum in 1924, a year after the establishment of the Republic of Turkey.

Later visit the Grand Bazar and the Spice Market. The Grand Bazaar is the biggest of all bazaars in Istanbul. It is a covered market with 41 streets. It is the largest and the oldest covered market in the world. You can maybe skip the Spice Market but do not miss the Grand Bazaar, because it will offer you the most memorable sights. Later if time permits visit the Sulta Ayyup area. Lunch in between at a local restaurant. Visit Camlica Hill, one of the highest points of the Bosphorus, 267 metres above the sea level, set on the Anatolian Asian Side of Istanbul. The Hill borders the Uskudar district and it offers wonderful panoramic views over the city as well as the Marmara Sea and Bosphorus. On a clear day, you can see all the way to the Princess Islands and the snow-covered ridge of the Uludag Mountain. At sunset the domes and minarets of Istanbul's many mosques make a stunning silhouette against the colorful sky. Spring is perhaps the best time of the year to climb the hill when the wild flowers and tulips are blooming and birds are migrating. In the evening enjoy the Golden Horn view. Dinner & Overnight.
