Full description
The Grand Bazaar is an important trading centre between Europe and Asia. In the narrow streets and long alleys you can see a variety of tiles, carpets, souvenir items, silverwares and design items. There are still so many hidden corners here that carry the oriental-mystical flair of 1001 nights. Your Studiosus tour guide will take you to the most interesting streets, market halls and handicraft yards, some of which are completely off the beaten track. In which store did Sean Connery buy his leather jacket? Where did Juan Carlos and Anne Hathaway find the most beautiful Iznik tiles? Who made the gold bracelet with Turkish ornaments that Rockefeller wore at the inauguration of the Manhattan Bank in Istanbul? Then an amazing walk up on the roof will follow suit. The roof of the Grand Bazaar acquired worldwide fame with the James Bond movie "Skyfall", but it could not be visited due to many years of renovation work. It was recently opened for visitors however access is granted to a limited number of people by special permission.
