Istanbul Itinerary: Please advise!

Jump to last reply

Hi! We are going to be in Istanbul on the 1st of January(for one day) and then back again from the 8th to the 13th.

Will anything be open on New Year's day? If so, we were thinking of the following itinerary:

Jan 1st: Hagia Sofia, Basilica Cistern, Blue Mosque, Grand Bazaar, Topkapi Palace

Jan 2nd - Jan 7th: Cappadocia, Pammukale and Ephesus.

Jan 8th: Spice Bazaar + Rüstem Paşa Mosque, Hamam(please recommend), Turkish and Islamic Art Museum, Galata Dervish House, Hippodrome

Jan 9th: Chora Chora Church, Sulemaniya Mosque, Archeological Museum Complex
Jan 10th: Bosphorus Tour + Dolmabahce Palace

Jan 11th: Yıldız Palace and Park, Kariye Muzi, Sokollu Mehmet Pasha

Jan 12th: Prince Island

Jan 13th: Fly back to NYC
Any other recommendations? Should we do it in any other order? Also, looking for recommendations for places to eat/drink. We are in our late 20's/early 30's from NYC.
