We use the horse-drawn carriages because cars are not allowed on the island except for official vehicles. On our journey, we enjoy lunch at a fish restaurant and you will have some free time to explore by yourself.
Like other islands, Büyükada was used as a place of exile during the Byzantion period. The Princes’ Islands were taken by Sultan Mehmet before conquest of Constantinople. At the highest point of the island, there is the important Aya Yorgi Church. Every year, on april 23th and september 24th, people climb to top of the hill (200m) so that their wishes, prays and dreams will come true. During your free time on the island, you can make a bicycle tour or go swimming at one of the local beaches.
