Hi DaniSan,

Your itinerary is very rich and very doable.

I would reorganize it a little bit though:

Day 1:

Morning part is Okay.

Lunch in Sultanahmet (Tarihi Sultanahmet Köftecisi / Selim Usta)

then head to Suleymaniye Mosque

Beyazıt Square

Grand Bazaar down to Eminönü

Bosphorus evening trip


Perfectly okay. You can munch on street food while roaming down the Istiklal Street which is full of great eateries.

Dinner- Kiva Han just across from Galata Tower


Do Dolmabahçe Palace as the first thing in the morning

Then you can head to Kadıköy (ferry from Kabataş)

Wonder around in Kadıköy fish market and have lunch at Çiya Sofrası Restaurant

Back to your hotel to catch your transfer to the airport

Istanbul is a fantastic city and I am sure you will have a wonderful time here.

Be excited,
