Meet with your private guide and driver at the hotel.
We travel by ferry to Yalova, then to the city of Bursa, the first capital of the Ottoman Empire between 1326 and 1365.
Because of its being the first Ottoman capital, Bursa is very rich in religious monuments, mosques, tombs and baths.
We will first visit the Green Mosque with its carved marble doorway and Green Mausoleum, set in a green garden with an enchanting exterior decorated with turquoise tiles.
We continue to the late 14th century Great Mosque built in the Seljuk style and the Koza Han, the center of Bursa’s flourishing silk trade for centuries. Afterwards, enjoy a leisurely cable car ride up the slopes of Mt. Olympus (Uludag)
Return back to the Istanbul in the evening.
