  • There are several halls present in this complex inside the Park, but visited only the Palace Museum every day except Tuesdays from 9.30 to 16 (with the Museum Pass by TRY 85 entrance is free). You visit on your left as you enter the long Gallery which displays mostly objects and furnishings that belonged to Sultan Abdulhamid II°, then we talk about the period from 1875 to the first decade of the twentieth century. Very interesting Art Nouveau section and especially that relating to production manufacturing porcelain Yildiz where he a big contribution also our Raimondo D'aronco called by the Sultan to contribute to the reconstruction of Istanbul after the earthquake of 1894. You see also, at the bottom of the Gallery, what is called the little apartment. We have made the visit alone, while the guide I had read that it was imperative the guided tour. Attention and outside it is forbidden to take photographs in certain halls. The Palace is just up the Hill, I recommend the taxi to get there and then walk down towards the Bosphorus.

  • What do you mean when you navigate in magnificence when you understand that the Palace as a guest of the Emperor remain. stoves great., the world's largest monolithic halısıvar was taken in demolishing the wall, all the walls there are more gold leaf will tell you, there's a lot of pictures in there appear necessarily restricted.

Where to stay in Istanbul

The bustling downtown core of old Istanbul is the popular choice among tourists wanting a short walking distance to the city's biggest attractions. Here you'll find hostel-style accommodations and reasonably priced and traditionally decorated hotels, as well as bed and breakfasts and inns with views overlooking the sea. Though often the most affordable, accommodations in the old city can be very overrun with tourists and street solicitors. If you seek a more relaxed stay, consider lodging near Taksim Square. This new, trendy neighborhood is a short 15-20 minute ride from the old city, but puts you closer to restaurants, shopping, and nightlife. Though the newer area of the city is a bit more upscale, you'll also find moderately priced hotels and some hostels. Look for luxury hotels in the western suburbs close to the airport, overlooking the banks of Bosphorus.
