Not the cheapest experience one can have in Istanbul but certainly one of the most unique for an American tourist so I think it is worth the price of admission. The building is so historic that you can imagine Turks centuries ago enjoying this custom.....More

Sultanahmet
With so many unmissable attractions within a mere
stroll of each other – and all set around the site of
an ancient Byzantine hippodrome – Sultanahmet is an
overwhelmingly popular tourist destination, and a
prime location for visitors to be wowed on a truly
epic scale. Beyond the wonders of the Blue Mosque, the
Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and more, this
relatively small area of Istanbul somehow manages to
