Byzantine Hippodrome, Istanbul: 90 reviews and 175 photos
The Hippodrome, which is the square next to both the Blue Mosque and the Hagia Sophia, is probably one of the oldest sites in Istanbul. It was originally built by the Romans in around 200AD, and would have been used for chariot racing and the like. It contains three columns, which are all that remain of the many that once lined the hippodrome, erected by the Emperor Constantine.
