“One day”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 August 2014

If you have one day, you can try to squeeze Topkapi Palace, Agia Sophia, Blue Mosque, Underwater Cistern, and Grand Bazaar in one day. But you have to move quickly! If there is time left, catching the sunset from the Galata Tower will be the icing on the cake. You can see all the attractions I just mentioned from a bird's eye view. Gorgeous!
