Begin by visiting Chora Church, built by Emperor John Comnenus. After Hagia Sofia, Chora Church is the most interesting Byzantine church in Istanbul. It is known for its impressive golden mosaics, as well as its massive dome.
Continue on to Byzantine Cistern, also built by Emperor John Comnenus for the purpose of storing water against the threat of siege. The cistern features a forest of Roman columns, and you will find no other structure with such architecture any place else in the world. It is the largest of several hundred ancient cisterns that still lie beneath the city.
Your last stop will be the Nur-u Osmaniye district, where the Grand Bazaar is located. Here you will have the chance to shop for the handmade, fine quality souvenirs that Istanbul is famous for.
