What to expect

Topkapı Palace was the grand residence of the Ottoman Sultans and the administrative centre of the Ottoman Empire for more than 400 years. On your guided tour, you will skip the line completely and enter directly with the tour group. You will get much more time to explore and enjoy your holiday this way.

Your guide will tell you the history of Topkapi Palace starting right after Constantinople was conquered by Mehmet II. Mehmet II and his family lived in the Blue Pavilion (currently located inside the Istanbul Archeological Museum) until Topkapi Palace was finished. Explore the courtyards and interior, see the Justice Tower and Relics Chamber and admire the wonderful view of the Bosphorus. There are hundreds of years of intrigue and history to discover at Topkapi Palace so make sure you join this skip-the-line tour to find out more.
