Day 2: Konya Tour – Fly back to Istanbul – End of Tour Service

After breakfast at approximately 9:30 am, you will be picked up from your hotel to commence a full-day tour of Konya. The journey begins with a visit to the Tomb of Rumi, located in the splendid Mevlana Museum, a site of great significance for Muslims and admirers of Rumi alike. Adjacent to this, the tour includes the historic Sultan Selim Mosque, an Ottoman-era gem. Lunch will be enjoyed in a traditional Turkish restaurant.

Following lunch, the tour proceeds along Mevlana Caddesi, the main boulevard of Konya, leading to the ancient Alaettin Hill, a site with prehistoric roots. Here, you’ll explore the Alaaddin Mosque, a millennium-old structure where Rumi frequently prayed. The mosque’s courtyard houses the tombs of numerous Seljuk Turkish sultans, contemporaries of Rumi who sought his spiritual counsel.

Descending the northern slope of Alaettin Hill, the tour passes by the remnants of the Seljuk Sultan’s palace. Across the street, you’ll witness the grand portal of the medieval Great Karatay Medrese, a theological college. The tour then moves to the Mosque and Tomb of Sems-i Tabrizi, Rumi’s esteemed companion, spiritual guide, and muse for many of his poetic compositions.

At the end of the tour, you will be transferred to Konya Airport for your evening return flight to Istanbul. END OF OUR SERVICE and TOURS.
