The best place to feel the antiquities are city walls. Your stroll through Istanbul's multi-layered history begins in Yedikule Fortress, in the dungeons where many diplomats were imprisoned when the Ottoman Empire declared war.

Join your guide and see the place where Ottoman sultans were also incarcerated and executed, and visit historic sites like the Gates of the walls, the cemetery of the Orthodox Patriarchs and the miraculous Ayazma of Balikli. You'll also see works by Architect Sinan.

The highlight of this tour is the chance to walk on the historic walls. First, you can walk on the walls in the Yedikule Fortress, then stroll over a kilometer from Belgrate Gate to Silivri Gate. It's like walking through time!

The tour includes pick up and drop off at your hotel.
