Summary

Explore the hidden corners and vibrant street life of this great city

Escape the crowds around Istanbul’s major monuments and discover the hidden corners and vibrant street life of this great city, in the company of a guide who knows Istanbul inside out. Walk in the shadow of the 5th century AD Theodosian Walls through back streets and alleyways, past mosques, churches, and street markets. Not for the faint hearted, this is a walking tour through the densely populated and often chaotic metropolis of Istanbul and its suburbs, although there are plenty of pockets of surprisingly quiet market gardens, cemeteries, and parks. Join us in exploring a hidden Istanbul and escape the tourist traps.

Tour highlights:

  • Walk the full length of one of the greatest fortifications in history, the little-visited Walls of Theodosius, stretching for over four miles between the Sea of Marmara and the Golden Horn
  • Enjoy the superb, hilltop Mihrimah Mosque, one of the most distinctive works of the greatest Ottoman architect, Sinan
  • Admire the splendid figurative mosaics and frescoes in the small but spectacular Church of St. Saviour in Chora
