Due to the existence of the various Monuments, the Sultanahmet district has grown into a touristy socio-commercial zone. Well secured by handsome & smart policemen, it is a glitzy district where one can shop for anything.

Priviously a hypodrome, now only some ruins survied from the old Byzantine Empire. This is one of the places that you can see three cultures meet at the same time. Rome, Byzantine, and the Ottoman

Staty here. Period. Great sites, within walking distance or the tram. Lots of shops, and wonderful restaurants. Every alley and every corner open up to new adventures.

Sultanahmet District is just the right place to choose in term of accommodation, dining, shopping, sightseeing.. or just to hang out at the public park near Hagia Sofia and Blue Mosque... the transportation system is just superb and convenient...

This area housees all the older sight seeing places in istanbul. Is it also known as the Old istanbul. Here you will see structures that have been around for several centuries, maybe 1000 years old. Really cool to walk around in the area and know the amazing architecture that was erected back that long of a time ago.
