HIGLIHGTS Topkapi Palace,Sultan Tombs
30Euro Book NOW
Travel back in time to the days of the Ottoman sultans on this 3-hour sightseeing tour of Istanbul's Topkapi Palace and Sultan Tombs! Listen to tales of the extravagant sultans as you explore the spectacular Topkapi Palace, home to many of these gilded rulers for more than 400 years. Marvel at the priceless hauls of jewels, weaponry, robes and sacred Islamic relics in its Treasury and see its ornate courtyards and chambers. Finish with a visit to the opulent mausoleums at the Hagia Sophia where five sultans are buried.
Topkapi Museum is the biggest one...the most important museum of Turkey and the Balkan Peninsula. It's an incomparably rich treasure-chest, brimming with things of historical importance. The snag is that you can't see for looking both because of the embarrassment of riches and the sheer size of the place (the Palace area covers 80 acres - set off in the wrong direction and you have to walk three times too far). Indeed, how you see it is almost as important as what you see. First, second, third and fourth courtyards

Topkapi Palace:  
The great palace of the Ottoman sultans from the 15th to the 19th centuries housing an exquisite collection of cyrstal, silver, and Chinese porcelain, robes worn by the sultans and their families, the famous jewels of the Imperial Treasury, miniatures, the Holy Mantle; enshrining relics of the Prophet Mohammed.
