What people are saying:

Sultanahmet Square is definitely the best area of the city for tourists to start exploring. There is so much rich history here that you'll find something new around every turn - even if you aren't looking for it! Very interesting to see how this place has changed over the years with the influence of different cultures and different religions.

    Amazing historical location, a must visit

    This is one of the top spots in Sultanahmet and Istanbul. There is a lot of security around it but it is still a beautiful and historical location in Turkey.

Additional Information

Introduction

Sultanahmet Square is the central point around which many of Istanbul’s historical and interesting sites can be found, such as the Hippodrome, Blue Mosque (Sultan Ahmet Camii), Hagia Sophia, and the underground Basilica Cistern (Yerebatan Sarayi). After you’re through with visits inside these monuments, it is worthwhile spending time ambling around the square as the atmosphere is pleasant and its interesting observing the varied activities of locals as opposed to tourists whose single purpose is to snap anything they can with their cameras.
