your experience

Join your guide to explore one of Istanbul's most iconic historic landmarks, located in one of the oldest settlements of the city. Right from the beginning of the 17th-century, the Blue Mosque has attracted hordes of worshippers and travelers. Originally named after Sultan Ahmed I of the Ottoman Empire, the intricate blue tiling you will see in the mosque has led to its popular moniker. The glorious 6 minarets have an interesting story to tell; make sure you ask your guide about it!

Serving as both a place of worship and as a museum, and located to several other popular attractions like Hagia Sophia, the Blue Mosque is a must-visit for every Istanbul visitor.
