"TOPKAPI SARAY (PALACE)" Topkapi Palace Tip by Lalique

Topkapi Palace, Istanbul: 275 reviews and 646 photos


The major and biggest thing to see in Topkapi is Harem. Beautiful building inside and outside with a mase of about 100 rooms. Though excursions there are very poor organised. It's alowed to go inside only in groups of 60 people with a local guide. So 1st you should wait for a group to gather up, 2nd you're not alowed to deviate the certain route inside, strict guards will hurry you up in order to keep up with the group.
