When you visit the market you will find ivory, silk, furs, perfumes, and other luxury items.  The city has walls built around the entire city, as well as it being a peninsula, so you will always be protected. Not to mention that you would be welcomed into the Greek culture with open arms.

You would never be bored. Everyone comes to the chariot races that take place in the city's enormous stadium, called the Hippodrome! You will be able to worship in the glorious Hagia Sophia. The Hagia Sophia is a great cathedral, and is one of the most famous buildings in the world! The Orthodox church used many images in its services and prayers. Byzantine artists created beautiful icons, which are usually painted on small wooden panels. Artists also painted them on murals. The domes on the beautiful churches represent the "dome if heaven".   Constantinople also has a sewer system, and a public bath.
