    The Sultanahmet area is by far Istanbul’s most important place for tourists. All the biggest attractions are here: Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque, Hippodrome, Cistern Palace, Topkapi Palace, and more. Plus it’s a short walk to the Grand Bazaar and the Archaeological Museum. While of course I love the main attractions (and they shouldn’t be missed), I also really enjoy walking around and exploring the seemingly minor nooks and crannies. Some incredible finds can be had in doing so. One of my favorite discoveries is the Cefer Aga Medresesi which I write more about in another tip. Additionally, on the other side of the Blue Mosque a little down the hill, there is a wonderful collection of shops in an old bazaar. While not nearly as famous as the Grand Bazaar, this are is a great place to really shop as it is much less crowded and I usually seem to find better bargains as well.
    Sultanahmet is my dream destination.
