Tour Itinerary ;

This will be a 4-5 hours of Walking & Photography tour starting from your hotel; meeting with our guide exploring the old
town of Istanbul " Off the Beaten Path " and non touristic part of the city.

Sahaflar : Secong Hand Book handlers located near the Istanbul University.

Aquaduct of Valens : The Valens Aqueduct stands in Istanbul, in the quarter of Fatih, and spans the valley between the
hills which are today occupied by Istanbul University and the Fatih Mosque. It is a creation of the late Roman and the
early Byzantine time. It is uncertain as to when the aqueduct’s construction began, but it is mentioned in certain sources
that it was completed eithe during the reign of Emperor Valens (364–378CE) or of Hadrianus (117–138CE) whose
names it bears.

Fener and Balat districts are located on the historic peninsula of Istanbul. Once a focal point of the social and cultural lives
of Greeks, Armenians and Jews, the Fener and Balat districts are presently inhabited by a mostly Muslim population
that immigrated from other cities and rural areas.

Fener was dominantly a Greek neighbourhood since the Byzantine period. In the 17th century, Fener became the
residence of upper classes and the bourgeoisie with its hewn stone buildings and richly ornamented house facades.
During the Ottoman period, an important segment of Greeks who lived in Fener, who were well-educated and fluent in
several languages, held high government positions as interpreters or diplomats. During the 18th century, the majority of
new constructions were made of stone or wood; and aristocratic Greek families started to build villas around the Patriarchate.

Balat is known as a Jewish quarter--with a small Armenian population-- dating back to the Byzantine period. Balat's
winding streets provided a meeting ground for navigators, seafarers, street vendors and porters. Following the earthquake
of 1894 and a series of fires that affected not only the neighbourhood but whole city of Istanbul, the social structure of
Balat underwent significant changes: The wealthiest section of the inhabitants left the district and moved to Galata, which
is the current location of the Jewish institutions including the Chief Rabbinate and major synagogues. The emigration
followed and one fourth of the population of Balat left for Israel after its establishment.
