This guided tour of Hagia Sophia is perfect to discover all the details of one of Istanbul's star monuments – a must to learn about the history of the city!

Hagia Sophia Tour

At the indicated time, we'll meet at the entrance of Hagia Sophia. Are you ready to visit one of the great masterpieces of Byzantine art? Let's get started!

We'll begin by learning about the building's history as we admire the beauty of Hagia Sophia from the outside. Its four minarets and dome, more than 98 ft (30 meters) in diameter, have become one of the emblems of Istanbul.

As we enter Hagia Sophia, we'll continue to discover how a Greek Orthodox church was converted into a mosque in the mid-15th century. Later, it was then transformed into a museum, only to become a mosque again in 2020!

The guide will tell you all the details of its architecture, from its lighting to the impressive dimensions of the main hall and its mosaics. You'll be left speechless by its beauty!

After touring Hagia Sophia for an hour and a half, we'll end the guided tour outside the mosque.
