What you can expect

An impressive marble facade overlooking the Bosphorus suggests there’s unparalleled opulence to marvel at behind the ornamental gates of Dolmabahce Palace. Across the strait another continent beckons, and awe-inspiring views over the city’s skyline open up from Camlica Hill on the Asian side.

Spreading out over of 11.2 acres (45,000 sqm), containing 285 rooms and 46 halls, Dolmabahce is the largest palace in Turkey. The exorbitance of this former residence of Ottoman sultans doesn't stop at the exterior. Its largest chandelier has 750 lamps and weighs 4.5 tons. Stroll through luxurious interiors, extensively decorated with gold, crystal, and marble. Follow an expert guide who shares background stories about life in the royal court during the 19th and 20th centuries.

Your tour visits 2 continents as you cross the Bosphorus Bridge (one of the longest spans in the world) to Asia. Standing atop Camlica Hill, with panoramic views over Istanbul, you come to see the vast expanse of the city. It's a perfect opportunity to take some holiday snaps.
