Itinerary:
Your guide will pick you up from the port to begin the day’s tour. From there, you will go to Kabatas to board the funicular through a tunnel up the hill to Taksim Square, the heart of modern Istanbul. From Taksim you will begin a tour of the modern city, strolling around the shopping and leisure district that surround Istiklal Caddessi toward the Galata District. You will ride the historic tram down Istiklal Caddessi toward Galata, Istanbul’s historic Jewish quarter. From here you will continue onward toward Galatasaray Square and St. Anthony Church, established in 1725. You will be able to see the Pera Palace Hotel, built to accommodate pampered travelers aboard the Orient Express, and then head on to Galata Mevlevihane, which is a center for whirling dervishes in Istanbul. You will conclude your tour at Galata Tower, which offers spectacular views of the city, before your guide will return you to your ship. The tour will be approximately 5 hours long in total.
