Make your stay in Istanbul memorable! The pearl of the Bosphorus is full of majestic buildings to contemplate up close. You can start your city tour with the Blue Mosque. It owes its nickname to the blue earthenware that covers the walls of the prayer hall. A rare fact, the grandiose building is topped by six minarets. Non-Muslims will also be able to take a discreet look inside. Facing the mosque, discover the other must-see in Istanbul, Hagia Sophia. A Christian place of worship in the 6th century, and then a Muslim one in the 15th century, it now houses a museum. The mosaics and galleries are absolutely dazzling. Not far from your hotel, don't miss the Topkapi Palace. This Ottoman gem takes you to the heart of the life of the Sultans. Kitchens, harems, courtyards, etc., seem frozen in time. The highlight of the show is the Salle du Trésor, which brings together magnificent priceless pieces such as thrones.
