Located in the Sea of Marmara off the coast of Istanbul, the Princes’ Islands are a chain of nine islands offering a peaceful retreat from the hustle and bustle of Turkey’s largest city. Buyukada is the largest island of the nine and one of the most attractive with two peaks and gingerbread-style villas lining the slopes.
Day 1 - Princes' Islands
On our one day tour of the Buyukada Island you will be transferred by local tram to the port early this morning for a boat trip across the Marmara Sea. Buyukada is the most-visited of the Princes’ Islands, a colourful and charming summer resort with plenty to see and do. Walking through the historic Ottoman ferry terminal you emerge in the bustling town centre, filled with a collection of quaint shops and restaurants. Just off Dock Square we board an electric buggy for a short tour of the town including the shores of the island and the green-covered hills. With private vehicles and taxis banned on the island, this really is the only way to get around! Our guide will recommend places for lunch which is at your own expense. Why not try one of the many seafood restaurants! Later this afternoon return back to Istanbul by ferry with an included transfer to your hotel.
