  • The tomb of Sultan is to the East of Hagia Sophia. Admission is free, but the baggage inspection. You are so heavily is divided into five buildings not, each Sultan and his family are buried. Just say, put a veil of green coffins lined. Sultan is the largest of the Empress Cixi's coffin is next. While there are small coffins. The building collection of princesses coffin. But was the most secluded building looked through the window from the Hagia Sophia Vantage while staying here. However, take off your shoes, and go up. Tomb of Sultan had immense power, it is extremely simple.

  • Around the side of the Aya Sofia, near the entrance to Topkapi, are these 5 tombs with free entry. Each has very nice design on the ceilings and not many people visit them, so it's a great place to si...  more »
  • This is a bit hidden in Sultanahmet Square shrines to visit for historical and attracts one of the religious places. Open to the public and free. For curious.

  • On the way from Haghia Sophia to the Topkapi, it is worth to visit this Sultans' tombs area, very interesting and cured.
  • It's Free! The architecture and detailed craftsmanship is worth your time. Won't take you long to check out each tomb. Very nicely designed and in great condition. They have robes for women at each tomb when you enter.
  • only garvs very sad place but it is well designed and filled with flowers
  • Astonishing sultan tombs, decorated by ornamental tiles, wood carvings and stone and wood inlay. Worth to see. A magic place.
  • It is the grave of a sultan who is burried alongside with his children and wives who were killed on the day the sultan died, by the eldest son so that the other children cannot claim rights to the throne. So sad place to visit.

Where to stay in Istanbul

The bustling downtown core of old Istanbul is the popular choice among tourists wanting a short walking distance to the city's biggest attractions. Here you'll find hostel-style accommodations and reasonably priced and traditionally decorated hotels, as well as bed and breakfasts and inns with views overlooking the sea. Though often the most affordable, accommodations in the old city can be very overrun with tourists and street solicitors. If you seek a more relaxed stay, consider lodging near Taksim Square. This new, trendy neighborhood is a short 15-20 minute ride from the old city, but puts you closer to restaurants, shopping, and nightlife. Though the newer area of the city is a bit more upscale, you'll also find moderately priced hotels and some hostels. Look for luxury hotels in the western suburbs close to the airport, overlooking the banks of Bosphorus.
