      Istanbul Self-Guided Audio Tour

      Istanbul, Turkey
      From (USD) $20 Per Audio Guide
      • Hagia Sophia: Before it became a mosque in 1453, it was the world's largest cathedral for more than nine centuries. Its engineering and artistic wonders – towering minarets, domed ceilings, and stunning mosaics leave you breathless.
      • Topkapi Palace: Take in the splendor and sheer scale of this lavish imperial complex, home to Ottoman bureaucrats, lusty sultans, and perfumed concubines for nearly 500 years of Ottoman rule. Marvel at opulent pavilions, golden mosaics, and other treasures.
      • The Hippodrome: Your audio commentary will help you envision the careening chariots that once raced around a 1,500-foot-long oval to the roar of 100,000 spectators, built under Constantine the Great in the 4th century. See the Serpentine Column, the Walled Obelisk, and the Statues of Porphyrios.
      • More to see and do: Visit the Turkish and Islamic Arts Museum, Great Palace Mosaic Museum, and Archeology Museum; marvel at the below-ground reservoir known as the Basilica Cistern, built in 532 with 332 marble columns that made it as grand as the church above.
      • Easy and inexpensive: Your confirmation email includes a one-time download link for an audio tour and corresponding numbered map. Just put on your headphones and hit play – each attraction is a separate track, so you set the pace.
      • Blue Mosque: The former Sultan Ahmed Mosque is now named after the color of its huge domed ceilings and floor-to-ceiling mosaics made of tens of thousands of Iznik tiles. It has the biggest courtyard of any Ottoman mosque, 260 windows, and a vast prayer area.
