Day 1

Duration: 9 am to 4 pm.

We begin at the remnants of the former Imperial Palace, Blachernae Palace.

Next, Yedikule Fortress, a stone guardian where Ottoman and Byzantine legacies unite.

We drive beneath the Valens Aqueduct, a remarkable engineering feat.

Balat’s vibrant streets embrace us, their cobbled paths leading to the enigmatic Iron Church.

Finally, the Church of St. George, the Ecumenical Patriarchate’s spiritual heart.
