"Walk through Hippodrome" Hippodrome - Atmaydani Tip by albaaust
Hippodrome - Atmaydani, Istanbul: 66 reviews and 131 photos
The Sultanahmet Square /Hippodrome is where chariot races were run and was the centre of Byzantine civic life. Only three monuments have survived: the Obelisk of Theodosius, the bronze Serpentine Column and the Column of Constantine.
This is a nice area to walk through on the way to the Blue Mosque with its 18th century houses which have been restored from Ayasofya or the other way round.
Directions: Almost opposite AyaSofya
