Blue Mosque, Aya Sofia and Topkapi are absolutely stunning. Surroundings also very smart compared to our last visit 4 decades ago!
The Blue Mosque and the Haghia Sofia are the sights that everyone goes to Istanbul to see, both are well worth a visit and you will not be disappointed but the queues can sometimes seem never ending best to get there early before they start to build up at the Hagia Sophia guides come along the line offering their services...

We have travelled many big cities in the world specially in Europe & USA but Istanbul is one of the best.

Area was too crowded but it can be managed. Better that you go early in the mornig so you have plenty of time to see the places especially as the museum closes at 4.30 pm.

We came in spring, so lots of tulips blossoming, nice walking area, enjoying every corner of this old city. Just be careful there is trolley train passing by every 5 mins, very close by .
I loved everything about it. They were so quaint. The tiles in the mosques were beautiful. The Cisterns were really really pretty, even though it was dark underneath.
We went through the Historic Areas of Istanbul and major attractions nearby includes Haggia Sophia, Tokapi Palace, Blue Mosque, Grand Baazar and so on. Overall: 5 Stars
There are so many sites to choose from and from different cultures. Most of the sites are world class historical sites and some are built on a colossal scale. The downside is crowds and queuing, Topkapi palace especially.
