Additional Information


Sultanahmet Square is the central point around which many of Istanbul’s historical and interesting sites can be found, such as the Hippodrome, Blue Mosque (Sultan Ahmet Camii), Hagia Sophia, and the underground Basilica Cistern (Yerebatan Sarayi). After you’re through with visits inside these monuments, it is worthwhile spending time ambling around the square as the atmosphere is pleasant and its interesting observing the varied activities of locals as opposed to tourists whose single purpose is to snap anything they can with their cameras.
