Want to experience the best of Istanbul like a local? Then take a local’s guide to Istanbul tour. Sure, a visit to Turkey wouldn’t be complete without visiting all the best attractions in Istanbul.

Panorama 1453 Museum
The centre point of the museum is a 3D panoramic depiction of the actual 15th-century siege. A massive dome, hand painted by eight artists over five years.
Kariye Museum – Chora Church
The majority of the frescoes and mosaics depict the lives of Jesus Christ and the Virgin Mary, including some rare depictions of the birth and life of Mary herself.
