On this tour, you will spend your time sightseeing around the Golden Horn, the arm of the Bosphorus and a natural harbour in the historical peninsula separating the old and new sides of İstanbul where the first Byzantine colonies settled.

Drive along the traces of history in Balat viewing the Metal Church of St. Stephen the Bulgarian, the Jewish Hospital (Or-Ahayim), the Fener Orthodox Patriarchate. See the Byzantine city walls, which span 22 kilometers are were the strongest fortification in the middle age.
