We caught the tram to the Grand Bazaar stop and then just go straight down the street to the left of the Grand Bazaar.
The Mosque is a 10-15 minutes walk from the Grand Bazaar and passes plenty of shops before turning left up the hill to the Mosque.
Just before the Mosque is a lovely cemetery with irises growing amongst the headstones. After going through the cemetery there is a delightful terrace which offers magnificent views of the Bosporus and the rest of Istanbul.
The domes and 4 minarets of the Mosque also make a good picture from the terrace and we then walked into the outer courtyard of the Mosque which was very peaceful after the huge crowds around the Blue Mosque. The inside of the Mosque was closed to visitors as it was prayer time when we were there but it was still well worth visiting for the views of the Bosporus.
