What To Expect
Start the tour with a drive to the Intercontinental Bridge, also known as Bosphorus Bridge. A gateway to Europe and Asia, its length from its two legs is 1074 meters.
We'll drive next to Camlica Hill, the highest peak in Istabul with a height of 238 meters. Here is where we'll see a splendid panorama of the Bosphorus Strait. After a photo stop, we will proceed to the next suspension bridge towards the Dolmabahce Palace.
Dolmabahce Palace is one such architectural jewel, built by the Ottoman Sultan Abdulmecid between 1843 and 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.
Your expert guide on 19th century Ottoman history will take you step-by-step deep into the history of the palace and to its related stories full of legends, myths, and poems. Lastly, you will visit the Dolmabahce Mosque.
