Go underground at the Basilica Cistern (where the virus was hidden in the novel, close to the Medusa head). Stroll around the Hippodrome (where four bronze horses were once located; they are now in Venice in St Marc Church). Pass by the New Mosque, built in the 1600s, as you walk to the Spice Market.
