First constructed in 1455 as a center for local trade, the Grand Bazaar, is one of Turkey’s most popular attractions – and the nearby Spice Bazaar isn’t far behind in fame. Hop on a video call with a local guide for a front-row seat to these lively markets without having to spend a cent!
You’ll jostle your way through the hundreds of thousands of visitors that descend here daily for food, ceramics, carpets, lamps, and jewelry, and discover how locals have shopped for centuries. Visiting all 4,000 stalls would take weeks, so we’ll take the Mahmutpasa exit from the Grand Bazaar and make the short trek down a buzzing street towards the Spice Market.
You’ll see the rich colors and textures of traditional Turkish homeware and hear locals bargaining for the best price. It’s a shopping spree with a difference, and we can’t wait for you to experience it!
