Pnly 3 1/2 days in Istanbul - need help planning

Jump to last reply

We only have 3 ½ days in Istanbul, and I know it is not enough…but it is what it is. Here is an initial plan for these days, please let me know if it’s too much:

Day 1 – we land from US at about 12:30pm, so we will be jet-lagged. After checking into the hotel and lunch, I am hoping to do the 5 pm (or 6 pm) 1.5 hr Turyol ferry on the Bosphorus cruise. I assume the ferry makes some stops, but it will apparent where the end of the line is. Do we need to change ferries, or can we get a round trip ticket and stay on the boat to get back to Eminönü?

Day 2 – Blue Mosque, Sultanahmet Park, Aya Sofia, Basilica Cistern and Yeni Cami

Day 3 – Topkapi Palace, Grand Bazaar, the Spice Market, Rustem Pasa, Galata Bridge and Tower – if we skip anything, it will be the Grand Bazaar (I think)

Day 4 – Chora Church, Suleymaniye Mosque, Dolmabahce Palace and Ortakoy Mosque
All days seem sooo full, is there a better way to organize them?

What is the easiest way to do day 4? I assume that if we get a taxi at the hotel, we would get a set price, and would not be left somewhere in the middle of nowhere when going to Chora Church. Suleymaniye Mosque seems to be right next to it, and from there…how do we get to Ortakoy Mosque, and then to Dolombahce Palace? I think we would prefer public transportation, so we do not have to deal with taxis and price negotiation.

We will get the Istanbul card, so we do not have to stay in line, and get online tickets before hand whenever possible.
Any other suggestion? Thanks
