Getting to Know Istanbul at Sultanahmet

Local Time: 1:14 pm Local Weather: 20°C / 68°F  /  Partly Cloudy

Istanbul’s oldest district, Sultanahmet, was once a city unto itself, set along the waters of the Golden Horn, the Sea of Marmara and the Bosphorus River. Here, wending your way along charming cobblestone streets is a journey back in time. Magnificent structures like the 6th-century Hagia Sofia, the 17th-century Blue Mosque and the vast Ottoman palace of Topkapi pay homage to the ancient cultures of the Byzantine and Ottoman empires. They’re an easy walk from the luxurious Four Seasons Hotel Istanbul at Sultanahmet, located in the heart of the city. The property itself has historical significance—it’s housed in a hundred-year-old Neoclassical building that was once a Turkish prison.

The streets here are a feast for every sense. Explore the exotic Grand Bazaar brimming with spices, dried fruits, cheeses, jewellery and textiles. Explore the wonders of this majestic city for yourself.
