Grand Bazaar, Istanbul

The Kapali Carsi or Grand Bazaar in Istanbul is the largest covered market in Turkey, and offers an inordinate range of breathtaking items at great bargains.

The Kapali Carsi or Grand Bazaar in Istanbul is the largest covered market in Turkey, and offers an inordinate range of breathtaking items at great bargains. Packed with literally hundreds of individual stalls arranged in narrow aisles, the effervescent Bazaar spread over 60 blocks is a must-visit in Istanbul.

Spend a good half day touring the extensive market that sells fine handmade Turkish carpets and technicolor Kilim rugs, vibrant herbs and spices, jewellery, sparkling crystal and crockery, glazed tiles and pottery, copper and brassware, Turkish lamps, leather, Turkish costumes including authentic belly dancing outfits, and handmade musical instruments. Your tour guide will help you pick out only authentic, quality pieces and also assist you in bargaining for the right price. While most shopkeepers you negotiate with will offer you a glass of hot tea, you could also stop by at one of the several cafes in the Bazaar and try a chilled Ayran.

Million

While this partially intact marble pillar dating back to 4th century AD may seem unremarkable, it was the starting point of any distance measured within the empire during the Byzantine era, so it may be nice to think that you are in the centre of where all the roads lead to (or, rather, start from)

Gülhane Park

This park was royal hunting grounds in the past

Museum of Turkish and Islamic Art

Carpets, rugs, calligraphy, pottery

Hagia Irene

Hagia Irene, which you will notice to your left after entering the outer yard of Topkapi Palace, is one of few Byzantine-era cathedrals which was never converted to a mosque (though not used for religious purposes either during the Ottoman period), although access to the interior is not allowed unless you have a ticket to the classical music concerts sometimes taking place inside the building
