Hippodrome
A paved open-air museum outlines the footprint of where the Hippodrome once stood in today’s Sultanahmet. In its Byzantium heyday, the circus accommodated 10,000 people who came to watch chariot races, and witnessed various protests and riots during the Roman and Ottoman eras. Not much remains of the original structures except the vaulted ruins of the Sphendone, an ancient column, and two obelisks—one dating back to the 15th century BC.
