With so many unmissable attractions within a mere stroll of each other – and all set around the site of an ancient Byzantine hippodrome – Sultanahmet is an overwhelmingly popular tourist destination, and a prime location for visitors to be wowed on a truly epic scale. Beyond the wonders of the Blue Mosque, the Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and more, this relatively small area of Istanbul somehow manages to retain an air of peace and calm. It offers visitors a significantly less celebrated but nonetheless pleasant network of quaint lanes and side streets, majestic panoramas of the Bosphorus, and an impressive assortment of accommodation options for all budgets and tastes.

A view to be seen!!
Добрый день. Я была в Стамбуле осенью, прилетала в аэропорт Sabiha Gökçen. Может вам пригодится мой опыт. На выходе из здания аэропорта в терминале, рядом с остановкой автобуса, приобрела Истамбулкарт. Затем села на автобус Е10 и доехала до причала Кадыкёй. Там пересела на паром через пролив Босфор и доехала до причала Эминёну. Затем прошла до остановки трамвая Т1 и доехала до остановки Чемберлиташ. Отель расположен в 5 минутах ходьбы. Везде проезд оплачивала Истамбулкарт. Счастливого пути!
