Turkish Airlines offers a lovely free tour when you have a long layover, inclusive with breakfast, lunch and on certain days a skip the line tour of the Hagia Sophia (and the line was really long on the day we visited).

It was a fast tour done entirely in the bus, except one stop at the bosphorus to take pictures, and one bigger and useless at a cafeteria to spend money with a bit of nice views. Maybe if they used that time to take us...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
