Overview

Büyükada, literally “Big Island” in Turkish, is the original Princes’ Island which is the largest and most populated of the  Princes’ Islands. Büyükada was used as an exile destination and as a monastery region during the Byzantine Christian period. During the Byzantium history, the island was also used as a prison for those who were opposing the Emperor. It was Büyükada where the Byzantine empresses Irene, Zoe and Anna Dalassena were sent on exile.

After his deportation from the Soviet Union in February 1929, Leon Trotsky also stayed for four years on Büyükada. We see mansions, palaces, churches, convents and much more...

At the and of the tour we will take the ferry and be back to the city and then drive back to your hotel.
