As beautiful and awe-inspiring as the Blue Mosque is, I would have to say that this one was actually my favorite. The Iznik tile is gorgeous, and the smaller scale made me feel more welcome. Once you find your way in (up some stairs, which...More

This little mosque sits pretty above the spice bazaar but is by no means an easy find. Wind your way close from the busy side-streets and you'll find the stairs, which give little hint of what's ahead. The portico is the highlight of the mosque,...More

This was a wonderful Mosque to visit after the Suleymaniye Mosque. The Rustem Pasha Mosque is very small and nearly completely covered with blue tile. Absolutely beautiful.

This small mosque may not be impressive in size but I loved the blue tiles inside - very charming! 15 minutes should be enough for a visit to this mosque.

Grand Bazaar
Tourists, hawkers, and locals come together at the
Grand Bazaar to comb its labyrinthine passageways in
search of a bargain – be it a pair of brand name
jeans, a handcrafted silk rug, or a perfectly brewed
cup of tea. Outside the vast bazaar, worn, narrow
streets wind their way down from its lofty perch to
the southern shore of the Golden Horn, where the
evocatively aromatic Spice Bazaar beckons alongside
