Bosphorus Cruise: Curising Bosphorus will give you a different angle to view parts of this unique city. Soak in the 19th century wooden mansions, fancy palaces and gardens that line the banks of Asia and Europe.

Marmaray: Visit the networking system, the Bosphorus rail link beneath the Istanbul Strait ''Marmaray''. This project was partly completed in 2013 after four years of construction with many delays due to the ruins found from the Hellenistic, Roman, Byzantine and Ottoman periods.

Rumeli Fortress (from the sea): The largest fortification of Istanbul built by Sultan Mehmet II before he conquered the city.

Rustem Pasha Mosque: Constructed by the Great Architect Sinan, on behalf of the Croatian Grand Vizier Rustem Pasha who had married one of the daughters of Sultan Suleyman. Constructed from 1561 to 1563, this hidden gem is also described as the miniature of the Blue Mosque but without the crowds.

Lunch at a charming local restaurant.

Basilica Cistern: The largest of several hundred ancient cisterns beneath the city of Istanbul, built by Justinian, it was used to store water for the Great Palaceand nearby properties. All forgotten for years, it was rediscovered in mid-sixteenth century during a search for Byzantine monuments and manuscripts by the French King Francis I.

Hagia Sophia Museum: One of the UNESCO sites Hagia Sophia was once a primary church for the Byzantine Constantinople and is a historical mosque today. It was built upon the two earlier churches which were destroyed.

Sultanahmet Mosque/Blue Mosque: Located in the district of Old Istanbul, the mosque was built by Sultan Ahmet I and is distinguished by its six unique minarets and the famous blue ceramic Iznik tiles surrounding the interior walls.

Roman Hippodrome and Monuments: Once the centre of all Byzantine sports events and a social centre, Hippodrome held events such as bloody fights of Gladiators, chariot/car races and fierce riots.
