The only reason my husband's and my rating of this is not "Excellent" is our own faults - we missed out on much of what there is to see in the Palace. We went right before dinner and there were huge lines to get in to the jewel rooms. Once we made it out of those, we kind of forgot that there would be a lot more to see and headed out to get dinner. Because of that, we missed out on the Harem apartments, the museum of arms, etc. If we go back to Istanbul (which we hope to do), we will definitely visit this site in the morning or right after lunch so that we will have a few hours to look around.
