    After breakfast, we'll head out for the so-called "Byzantine" tour. We'll begin by visiting the Suleymaniye Mosque - The Magnificent, considered the most beautiful of Istanbul's imperial mosques, built between 1550 and 1557 by Sinan, the famous architect of the Ottoman golden age. Then, we'll make our way to the ancient walls of Constantinople, near the present-day Mevlana Gate, commissioned by Emperor Theodosius II in 413. These sturdy walls, several stories high and between three and six meters thick, protected the city from constant attacks by the Huns, Bulgarians, Russians, Arabs, Goths, and Turks. The walls were breached only twice, by the Crusaders in 1204 and by Mehmed "the Conqueror" in 1453.

    Next, we'll visit the Monastery of the Virgin of the Spring; according to historians Procopius and Cedrenus, the church was originally built by Emperor Justinian in the last years of his reign, near a water source formerly known as the "Fountain of Miracles", coming from a sacred well located outside the walls of Theodosius II, corresponding to today's Silivri Gate.

    Free time for lunch in the Eminönü district, the main gateway to the city in Byzantine and Ottoman times, now a bustling area home to the "Egyptian Market" or "Spice Bazaar". Afternoon at leisure.

    Optional excursion (at an additional cost) of the Bosphorus Cruise available. Return to the hotel at your own pace, dinner on your own, and overnight stay.

    Breakfast. Departure for the "Classic" tour: we will start by visiting the Hagia Sophia Basilica (now a mosque) "Divine Wisdom," indisputably one of the most fabulous buildings of all time. Built by Constantine the Great and rebuilt by Justinian in the 6th century, its immense dome rises 55 meters from the ground, with a diameter of 31 meters. During the Ottoman Empire, it was converted into a mosque, and minarets were eventually added.

    We continue with a visit to the ancient Byzantine Hippodrome, which was the center of the country's civil activity, where not only horse races and gladiator fights were held but also celebrations in honor of the emperor. Today it preserves the Obelisk of Theodosius, the Serpentine Column, and the German Fountain. The Blue Mosque was built in 1609 by Sultan Ahmet, who wanted to surpass Hagia Sophia with his mosque and built it with 6 minarets. Free lunch and the rest of the afternoon at leisure.
    Possibility to take the tour (optional, for a fee) to Topkapi Palace, the Basilica Cistern of Yerebatan, and the Grand Bazaar. 
    Return to the hotel on your own, free dinner, and overnight stay.
