Owner description: This enormous palace was the Imperial residence of Ottoman sultans for almost 400 years. Although much of the palace is not accessible, the daily tours of the Harem are of great interest to tourists.

Our only disappointment was we didn't have enough time to see it all. Oh and the amount of guided tours clogging the place up. Count the cruise liners in the harbour before going as they will all have clients on trips there.
Some lovely exhibits from a time gone by.

The topkapi palace depicts the Ottomon culture and how rich they were. Lots of historic and religious monuments and relics. Nicely located next to the river, it has got a very nice view and the breeze from river and view of the bridge is unforgettable..
