  • Day 1: Istanbul

    Morning visit to a Jewish neighborhood, Galata. You will see the Galata tower built by the Genoese in 1303. Visit the local synagogues, Neve Shalom and/or the Askenazy Synagogue. After lunch, visit the Hippodrome, a 3rd century site, where chariots raced during the Roman period. Visit the Blue Mosque, famous for its blue tiles and six minarets. Visit St. Sophia, a world heritage site built in the 6th century. (L)

    Note : In order to enter the synagogues, we need to receive the passport copies of the guests at least one week before the arrival since we need to declare them to the Jewish Community in Turkey.
