Istanbul is known for museums, historic sites, and shopping. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: take an in-depth tour of Hagia Sophia Museum, take in panoramic vistas at Galata Tower, admire the striking features of Basilica Cistern, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Sultan Ahmed Mosque.
