City Walls
 
initially was built by Constantine for protecting the city against attacks from both sea and land. After growing the city, the double line of the Theodosian Walls was built in the 5th century. 
Golden Horn was the ancient natural and secure harbour of Istanbul. Greek, Jewish, Armenian communities lived with Turkish people together along the shores of Golden Horn.
Spice Bazaar is one of the oldest bazaars in Istanbul, known in Turkish as the Egyptian Bazaar. There are many shops where you can buy spices, sweets, dried fruits and nuts, teas and coffees. 
Rumeli Fortress was built by Mehmet the Conqueror to cut off any food supply or weapons to Constantinople in 1452. The castle currently functions as a museum and open-air theater for various concerts at festivals. 
Dolmabahce Palace was built by Sultan Abdulmecid in 19th century. After Topkapi Palace was serving as the residence of Ottoman sultans for about 400 years, Sultan Abdulmecid moved and started to live at Dolmabahce Palace which is a beautiful mix of many European architectural styles.
Camlica Hill is situated on the Asian part and one of the highest point of Istanbul with 268 meters. You will have a chance to see Bosphorus, Bosphorus Bridge, Historical Peninsula, Galata and Beyoglu.
