We pick you up from your hotel then, cruise in the Marmara Sea to Princes’ Island by Maritime lines boat, cruising round these beautiful unspoiled islands. On our way to Buyukada, the largest island in the chain, we pass four smaller ones. All of them are famous for their mild climate, lush vegetation and ornate Ottoman houses, and on all of them cars are banned. They take their name from the princes who used the islands as a summer retreat in Ottoman times.
As cars are forbidden on the islands you will enjoy a tour of the island by horse-drawn carriage known as a “phaeton” and discover the elegant mansions draped in brilliant purple bougainvillea.
Lunch will be at one of the many excellent traditional fish-restaurants on the waterfront, gazing across the water at the Asian shore of Istanbul.
Buyukada is an excellent place both for swimming and relaxing.
End of the tour transfer to your hotel.
