    With so many unmissable attractions within a mere
    stroll of each other – and all set around the site of
    an ancient Byzantine hippodrome – Sultanahmet is an
    overwhelmingly popular tourist destination, and a
    prime location for visitors to be wowed on a truly

    A combination of the tram(above ground) and subway (below ground). You can buy tickets at the station once you get there. You will get off at the Sultanahmet stop and walk to Sultan from there. Hope that helps!
