Princes’ Islands… a charming chain which connects nine small islands in the deep blue sea of Marmara! A lovely gift from Istanbul to all of you…

All islands are famous for their mild climate, lush vegetation and ornate Ottoman houses. Cars are strictly prohibited, that’s why transportation can only be provided by horse-drawn carriages which are known as phaetons and bikes. But this restriction is that makes the islands even more unique!

During the Byzantine period, the islands were used as an exiled place for royalties, princes and later on for Ottoman Sultans. Until 1912, approximately 10.000 Greek and 670 Turks were living at Princes Islands. 

Our destination is Buyukada (Pringipos in Greek), which is the largest of the isles. After the Princes Islands tour, the moment we arrive on the last island, horse-drawn carriages will be waiting for us at the park so we can start an enjoyable ride through the pine trees and the narrow roads…

You can ask for some spare time to visit Aya Yorgi (a monastery on the top of the hill) which is an impressive place… Enjoy the fascinating sights of the city, until you reach your destination! A 1,5 hour journey through beautiful landscapes!
