On this half-day tour (3 hours) we will cycle around the Golden Horn. In this scimitar-shaped inlet of the Bosphorus, which divides Istanbul in two parts, Greek, Roman, Byzantine and Ottoman civilizations flourished for millennia. Across the centuries thousands of ships sailed through its golden waters for trade and warfare.
