Thos is a must-do, at least once. It is not enough with just one day, you need several days to see the sights and walk around the large area. I aspecially enjoyed seeing the park and square in the center and have just sat there to look at the beautiful historic buildings and imagine how it was in the past... also walking down towards the harbour, enjoy a meal at a restaurant terrace and enjoy the wiev. Lots of amazing houses around.

This area is great with all the key historic places just a walk between. Be warned -- some of the taxi drivers in this area are known to inflate fares, push their meter up, and charge too much. Know how much to expect and be careful

It is something magical when you can hear the call for prayers from both Sultanahmet and Sofia mosques at the same time. Sultanahmet district is the area, where you can experience that.

This is about knowing one of the most popular and powerful Emperor of Turkey. Surroundings are beautifully maintained.

We went to this place and roam around a couple of times as we booked our hotel nearby. It's a great place and so many areas to look around to take pictures as souvenirs. Tourist are everywhere doing the same. Highly recommended to travellers to see and stop by while travelling to Istanbul.
