Scenario Explanation

TAGS: - - - - - - - - -

Dan Brown’s latest novel, ‘Inferno,’ has topped bestsellers lists everywhere since publication in May 2013 and, as many are now aware, is partially set in Istanbul. Readers are invited to follow the protagonist, Harvard professor Robert Langdon on an exhilarating romp through the art history of Florence and Venice before tracing the clues to Istanbul, where the story reaches its climax. Whilst some critics have complained that it reads more like a guidebook than a novel at times, Brown cannot be knocked for his lack of detail.

When Dan Brown was researching Inferno, he visited Istanbul in 2009 and met with renowned tour-guide Serhan Güngör. Brown later revealed that Serhan was the inspiration behind the character Mirsat, the enthusiastic guide who shows Langdon around the Hagia Sophia, before becoming increasingly bewildered and concerned by the professor’s mystifying antics. In conjunction with esteemed travel agents, (FEST Travel), Serhan is now offering tours ‘In Search of Dan Brown’s Historic Pensinula. We invite you to Inferno In the Footsteps of Dan Brown.

Tour Details:

Meet with Your FEST Travel guide in front of Hagia Sophia. Hagia Sophia, the Archaeological Museum with sculptures from the Ancient Age from the Archaic Era to the Roman Era with wide unique artifacts, treasury section, the Non-Islamic and Islamic cabinets and the Library, The Basilica Cistern which is subterranean wonder and one of the biggest of Istanbul’s surviving Byzantine sites.
