Description

The old markets of Istanbul carry the spirit of different cultures and hundreds of years of history. You will be taking a relaxing ferry journey from Kadikoy to Eminonu like an ordinary Turkish person and then you will walk into one of the most interesting spice markets of the world. Recently restored to its former glory, 90 shops along L shaped 2 alleys display the most diverse spices, herbs, oils, tea and coffee culture.

On the way to Grand Bazaar from Spice Market, you will witness the most diverse patterns on Iznik tiles at Rustem Pasha Mosque. Packed with locals, Sultanhamam awaits you. The maze of streets presents the most vibrant shopping culture of textiles in the city. 

Then, Grand Bazaar’s journey starts. Discovering Grand Bazaar’s secrets is a mind-blowing experience. You will see the finest examples of goldsmiths, silversmiths, antique dealers, fabrics, leather products, semi precious stones, calligraphic examples and finally the most advanced art of rug weaving.
