Once the capital of the Ottoman Empire and an important trading gateway between the east and the west, this tour explores the Ottoman and neo-classical architecture and other gems of this city. On the border of three countries, Greece, Bulgaria and Turkey, Edirne is a living museum with its mosques, bridges, and caravanserais.
We will pick you up at your hotel at 7AM for the three hour drive to Edirne.
On arrival we visit three mosques- each unique in their own style and place in history.
Eski Camii which was built of cut stones and bricks between 1402-14,
Üç Serefeli Camii whose name comes from the three balconies on its southeast minaret and
Selimiye Mosque, Edirne’s crowning glory. It was built for Selim II. (1566-74) by Sinan, the masterpiece of his old age.
We will also visit Meric Bridge (New Bridge); Kule Kapisi (12 Tower Gate), which is all that remains of the tower that once protected the principal gate of the citadel; and Beyazit Kulliyesi, which included a mosque and a hospital, famous for the skill of its surgeons and where the insane were treated by musical therapy.
We will depart Edirne at 3:30PM for our return to Istanbul, returning you to your hotel around 6.30 pm.
