Description

Istanbul's glorious history as Constantinople, capital of the Byzantine Empire for over 1000 years, comes alive through this guide to the city's many Byzantine sites. From famous landmarks like Hagia Sophia Church and the Hippodrome to lesser-known churches, cisterns, sacred springs, and the 5th-century Theodosian land walls, the ten walking routes in this guide take the visitor through every layer of the city's Byzantine past. The revised and expanded 2nd edition features new photographs and all new maps; updated information on newly restored sites and recent archeological discoveries; and a new section guiding visitors along the seawalls and neighborhoods by the Marmara Sea. Not just a guidebook, Byzantine Istanbul also provides in-depth context on Byzantine history, Greek Orthodox Christianity, and art and architectural developments. A must-read for visitors curious about Istanbul's rich Byzantine history.
