UNDERGROUND ISTANBUL TOUR
Imagine a city that captures and stores time in its crypts and archaic corners, a city that can modernise without erasing its root. As surface inhabitants of Istanbul, we are often unaware of the great treasures of the past laying just beneath our feet. Istanbul is considered the cradle of three major civilizations.
This excursion draws your attention to the civilizations buried beneath Istanbul. While this tour brings to light an unknown visage of the city, it also helps us grasp the depth of its history, from antiquity to present day. The “Underground of Constantinople” tour invites you to the heart of Istanbul.
