Where you'll be

We'll start high above, with a great view of the whole city, at the ancient walls. From there we will make our way through the old narrow streets of 'Άνω Πόλη' to the survived mosque, Alatza Imaret.

Also, we'll see synagogue and Jewish monument, 'Frankish' quarter and buildings of the late Ottoman​, early Greek periods.
