6 ISTANBUL MyEDUCATION: HIGHLIGHTS AND FURTHER INFORMATION September ISTANBUL CITY TOUR A 3-hour walking tour of Istanbul led by a professional tour guide (docent). Since antiquity, Istanbul has been a melting pot, hosting diverse populations of Christians, Jews, and Muslims a layer cake of different people, from different traditions. Our course will take us from the Hippodrome, a center for sport activities and ceremonies famous for the chariot races during the Roman and the Byzantine era to the Blue Mosque, the second largest mosque in Istanbul, built during the Ottoman Period.

BOSPHOROUS BOAT TOUR: An excellent introduction to the city and its relationship with its surroundings, including spectacular views of major sites and districts. You can do this activity yourself at your convenience for as little as 10 Turkish Lira per person. Ask the Istanbul Student Services Coordinator for advice. For example, the public ferry departs from Eminonu and you can hop on this ferry by paying about 10 Turkish lira per person. Just outside the ticket selling office, you will find people selling tourist tickets at a very large premium, which are to be avoided. Themes: Landscape and Time; Neighbourhood and Community.
