Arrival in Istanbul ----> catch 80 minute flight to Cappadocia

Cappadocia will thrill you with its unique landscapes formed by erosions of winds and water. Today’s inactive volcanoes of Erciyes and Hasan used to be active thousands of years ago and erupted continuously covering the region with a blanket of tuff that gets eroded so easily due to its soft character. Cappadocia has been occupied by various civilizations including Hittites, Greeks, Romans and Turks living in rock dwellings for centuries.

Here you will see a chapel dedicated to St. Simeon and a hermit’s shelter built into one of the three-headed fairy chimneys. You will also visit the famous town of Avanos that was established by the Hittites on the riverbanks of Kizilirmak River. Making use of the red clay that is obtained from the shores of this famous river, Hittites created outstanding examples of pottery ware and used potters’ wheel as early as 2nd millennia BC. You will join a pottery workshop at one of the studios of a pottery artist of Cappadocia and watch the interactive presentation of creating masterpieces of pottery and ceramics.
You will end your day by descending below the earth’s surface into the Kaymakli Underground City, where five levels extend below ground and include living quarters, kitchens, wine presses, storage rooms, stables, and ventilation shafts.

DAY 4:   Breakfast at the hotel. Your private guide will meet you at your hotel lobby for your half-day tour of the city.
Begin your day with the visit of Hippodrome, once the vast arena that functioned as the heart of sporting (chariots races and athletics) events and political activities of the old city.
The Blue Mosque, one of the most famed masterpieces of Ottoman religious architecture. Standing in great prestige with its six minarets and perfect proportioned dome, it is named after its Turquoise colored tiles made of quartz minerals. Ottoman Sultans preferred to pray in this timeless shrine due to its incomparable beauty until when the empire collapsed after the World War. The more you listen to the in-depth lectures of your private guide today, the more you will comprehend the priorities the administrators of Constantinople had to execute to ensure that the city continues its existence in safety against external threats.
Take a short walk to the magnificent Hagia Sophia, the Church of Divine Wisdom. Ranking as one of the greatest marvels of World architecture, this awe-inspiring building was constucted as a basilica in the 6th century by Byzantine Emperor Justinian.

DAY 5:   Breakfast at the hotel. Enjoy your half-day tour to explore the historical sites of the city.
You will visit the Spice Market, the second largest covered market in Istanbul. It was constructed in the 1660s as part of the Yeni Camii (New Mosque) complex. The name derives from the herbs, and spices imported from or through Egypt. It is still the best place to buy Turkish delight, dried fruit, exotic spices and herbs. 
Take a short break at Ali Muhiddin Haci Bekir’s shop, the inventor of one of Turkey's most famous delicacies called “Turkish Delight”. The name Haci Bekir has become a legend in Ottoman and Turkish confectionary and here you will be able to enjoy many varieties of this delicious, sweet treat. Soak up the old-world atmosphere of this charming shop and take home a box of delights as a wonderful souvenir.  
Your last stop will be Rustem Pasha Mosque. Designed by the Ottoman imperial architect Mimar Sinan for Grand Vizier ‘Son-in-Law’ Rüstem Pasha (husband of Princess Mihrimah Sultana, one of the daughters of Suleiman the Magnificent), the construction was carried out from 1561 to 1563. The Rüstem Pasha Mosque is famous for its many exquisite Iznik tiles that depict a wide variety of beautiful floral and geometric designs. These priceless tiles have been used to decorate the mihrab, minbar, walls, columns and the interior and exterior façades of the enclosed portico. These tiles use the cherry red that is characteristic of the early Iznik period (1555-1620). No other mosque in Istanbul makes such a lavish use of these tiles.  Rest of day at leisure, overnight stay at the hotel in Istanbul.
Later in the evening, enjoy a spectacular illumination cruise between 7:30-11:30pm gazing at the iconic structures of Istanbul as they glow against the night sky. Set menu dinner with limited local drinks (2 glasses of local wine or 2 beers or 2 soft drinks) will be served on the boat.

There are four main courtyards which contain extensive gardens, pavilions, fountains, royal gates, divans, kitchens, libraries, mosques and the Harem. Visit the Treasury which houses a glittering collection of jewels, arms and armor, ceramics, imperial costumes and miniatures. It is in the Treasury where you will find the famous Spoonmakers Diamond and Topkapi Dagger.
Topkapi Palace Museum in Istanbul
Explore the private areas of the palace and learn some of the colorful stories of the infamous HAREM – the residence of the Sultan’s wives, concubines and children who were guarded by black eunuchs. There will be time for contemplation in the pavilions and time to imagine the scene when the gardens were once lit by candles riding on tortoises’ backs.
Yerebatan Sarnıcı
Just a short walk across the square takes you to the Underground Cistern, the largest of the many underground cisterns built during the Byzantine Empire to supply the city with water. This cistern is especially fascinating because the Byzantine builders recycled many stone structures - capital heads and columns-- that had been used in earlier temples. Now an upside-down Medusa stares out at us from her watery home.   Rest of day at leisure.  · Overnight stay at the hotel in Istanbul.
