Istanbul Pistacchio

Travel to Istanbul with one of our adventure partners, Zegrahm Expeditions. And you don’t have to wait until July either. Just watch this 10 minute virtual tour and mini-lecture on the world-famous Hagia Sophia.

Hagia Sophia (which I visitied in 2015) is a site visited on Zegrahm’s  Circumnavigation of the Black Sea expedition with art historian Allan Langdale. The building is tremendous. Istanbul is tremendous. It reminded me of a slightly less exotic version of Jerusalem, but I haven’t been there in over 30 years so it’s probably a bit more modern. I’m guessing.

His areas of expertise include ancient Greek, Roman, Byzantine, and Italian Renaissance art and architecture, and he will be presenting a collection of his own images highlighting some of the lovely mosaics and other decorative features found in this amazing building.
