Amerigo Vespucci

Amerigo Vespucci, the famous training ship of the Italian Navy, comes to Istanbul every year, and usually more than once a year (several times)



I see it very often on the Bosphorus

It's the largest existing sail ship in the world, with a 57m tall central mast.

And the famous commuter ferries of the Bosphorus, of course, with the Sea Walls of Constantinople (324), Topkapi Palace (1478), Haghia Sophia (537), and the Blue Mosque (1616) seen in the rear:

Istanbul's famous commuter ferries were built in Glasgow, Scotland

Most Bosphorus ferries (all of them since 1914) were designed by Fairfield in Glasgow.

This year is the 150th anniversary of the Bosphorus ferry.
