"Topkapi Palace" Istanbul Favorite Tip by SirRichard
Istanbul General: 539 reviews and 673 photos
Favorite thing: Reserve a whole morning for this visit. The Palace is the former residence of the Sultan and it houses wonderful jewel exhibitions, as well as the Haren where the many wives of the Sultan lived, a world were no man (except him) could enter. The gardens are nice and the views of the city gorgeous.
There is usually a lot of people to visit the haren, so go there first and take a place in the queue, just in case: I couldn't see it the first time I visited Istanbul.
