We'll visit historic and modern Istanbul today. High points will include the Hippodrome, the Museum of Turkish and Islamic Arts, and the stunning Blue Mosque.

We'll fit in the fabled Topkapi palace, with its formal gardens, salons of state and stately boudoirs of the sultan's harem; as well as the Treasury, whose collection includes priceless Chinese porcelain. At the Grand Bazaar, there will be occasion to assemble your own treasure from over 5000 stands, kiosks, and shops, filled with carpets, leatherwork, and treasures and trinkets from all points eastward. After a short rest, we'll gather for dinner, accompanied by live music, and the extraordinary Oriental art form that we know as the belly dance.

We'll stop in at the tekke of the renowned whirling dervishes. And in keeping with the traditional surroundings, we'll be hosted to tea at the landmark Pera Palace Hotel. We'll continue on foot, at least as far as Galatasaray Square, and lunch in the Çicek Pasaji (Flower Passage); then it's on to busy Taksim Square to rendezvous with our coach. We'll venture farther a field in the afternoon, to Yildiz Palace Park and the Ihlamur Kasri, a refined little palace south of Yildiz, and the Military History Museum in Harbiye, arriving in time for the strains of Mehter, the traditional Ottoman military band.
