    Balat: it is a neighborhood traditionally inhabited by Jews until they immigrated to Israel in the twentieth century. Bus rides with panoramic views of the walls of Theodosius: where the Byzantine Emperor Theodosius II walled the seven hills of Rome to protect the new city of Attila the Hun and the Bulgarian Orthodox Church of Saint Stephen, and their beauty is visible dominant from a distance. It is completely made of cast iron, although it seems stone. It is one of the few cast iron churches around the world that are preserved in their original format.

    It continues to Eyup district for a memorable cable car ride up the hill from Pierre Loti and relax with a delicious Turkish tea or a drink at the famous Pierre Loti coffee. This coffee, typically oriental in its architecture, is located behind the Eyup Mosque on top of the hill. Then we will visit Chora Church; Considered one of the finest examples of Byzantine church that can be seen today.

    This neighborhood was once home to the Greeks and their houses are typically Greek style. The Greek Fener Rum Lisesi high school: the building of magnificent and unique red brick, Fener dominates from the top of the hill. Here we visit the St. George Orthodox Church (Patriarchate of Constantinople): The historic and symbolic importance of this place is huge. It is one of the five main centers of Christianity. Visit Pammakaristos (Fethiye Camii): the main building continues to serve as a mosque, while the parekklesion became a museum. It hosted the Greek Orthodox Patriarchate until 1568. It contains the largest amount of Byzantine mosaics in Istanbul after St. Sophia, the Church of St. Saviour in Chora.

    Imperial Suleymaniye Mosque: considered the most beautiful of all imperial mosques in Istanbul. It was built by Sinan. It was in the gardens of this complex where Roxelana Suleiman and his wife did build their mausoleums, and nearby Sinan built his own tomb.
