Since the mosques are closing by noon and in the afternoon for the prayer times, we recommend you visit The Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia in the morning schedule. If you have restricted time of about 4 hours, then we suggest you visit:

The Hippodrome: an ancient chariot races U-shaped stadium with 100,000 spectators. Even though the Hippodrome had lost its seats, walls, and much of the remainings, the three monuments are still standing: the Egyptian Obelisk, Serpent Column, and Constantine Columns.

The Blue Mosque: an Ottoman imperial mosque that Sultan Ahmet built between 1609-1616. Even if it is called officially Sultanahmet Mosque, the travelers named the Blue Mosque after they saw the blue tiles inside.

Hagia Sophia: built by the Roman Emperor Justinian between 532-537 and became the highest and the biggest cathedral globally. The church was converted into a mosque by the Ottomans in the 15th century and became a museum in 1934. Hagia Sophia lost its museum status in July 2020 and has become a mosque again. Like the other mosques, Hagia Sophia is open to visitors.

If time permits, you can also visit the Grand Bazaar with your guide.
