You will see the views of Dolmabahce Palace, Leanders Tower, two suspension bridges, Rumeli Hisarı Fortress, beautiful mansions by the shores of Bosphorus and finally we disembark near the Spice Bazaar. After lunch we continue to Dolmabahçe Palace. Imagine a palace with 285 rooms, 6 baths (hamam), 68 toilets and a ceiling made of 14 tons of gold! Dolmabahce Palace is one such architectural jewel, built by the Ottoman Sultan Abdulmecid between 1843 – 1856, checking out the modern approach to architecture with an essentially French influence. The rich tastes and splendor of the era is evident in every corner and artifact in the decor. You just cannot miss the Bohemian crystal chandeliers, the Crystal Staircase or the largest handmade Hereke rug in the Great Ceremonial Hall. Our guide – expert on 19th century Ottoman history – will take you step-by-step deep to the history of the palace and to its related stories full of legends, myths, and poems. Our last place to visit is Camlica hill on Asian side, which has a top view on Istanbul city. Lunch included in the tour.

Hippodrome, where the chariot races were organized by the Romans and Byzantines, Blue Mosque-the only mosque with six minarets and its surroundings will be our next place to visit. Topkapi Museum is the big one…the most important museum of Turkey and the Balkan Peninsula. It is an incomparably rich treasure-chest, brimming with things of historical importance. First, second, third and fourth courtyards; the Audience Hall, Divan-the High Court, Historical Kitchens, Royal Stables, the Treasury, gardens, kiosks…Probably the best commentary on Ottoman History, art and its culture is simply to come direct to the First Courtyard of this amazing Palace. Hagia Irene Church (from outside). To see these things with a great guide…Well, you will never be quite the same again.
