A Step into the Past – Istanbul Bursa Tour

Take a ferry ride from Istanbul to Bursa across the Sea of Marmara.  Spend two days exploring Bursa.  And, then visit the highlights of magical Istanbul.

Bursa, the first capital of the Ottoman Empire, is also called Yesil (Green) Bursa for its parks and gardens with Uludag Mountain as a backdrop.  Bursa is the fourth largest city in Turkey today, a provincial capital and one of Turkey’s commercial centers.  It is known for its peaches, chestnuts and its silk industry.  Bursa is also famous for its Bursa, or Iskender, Kebap.  Be sure to try it.  This tour hits the historic highlights of Bursa.  First and foremost is the Green Mosque, with its beautiful tile work of greens, blues, and yellows.  Of particular note are the hexagonal green tiles covering the walls of the Prayer Hall.  This is the first Ottoman mosque to use tiles extensively as interior decoration.  We will also visit the Islamic Art Museum, the Green Mausoleum and take a cable car up Mt Uludag.

Istanbul is unique among the great cities of the world.  It straddles two continents, Europe and Asia.  Its history encompasses three major civilizations of the ancient world:  Roman, Greek, and Byzantine.  Not to mention its history as the center of the Ottoman Empire.  And, all that history is visible on almost every street corner with modern buildings perched atop ancient ruins and remnants of ancient walls lining today’s bustling streets.  It is truly a feast for the eyes and mind. Your two days in Istanbul will show you the historical highlights of amazing, magical Istanbul: the Hagia Sopha, the Blue MosqueTopkapi Palace, the Grand Bazaar, Bosphorus Cruise, and the Spice Bazaar.
