If you are into culture, art and Islamic/Ottoman architecture, this is the best place to see and experience an authentic Turkish architecture. Try to go there during sunny days (if you can) so you can enjoy the yard and beautiful tiles.
This former palace of the sultans is actually lots of small buildings. I’d say you’d need at least 2 hours to see the main bits. The harem is the best bit.... especially the modern looking bathrooms, but I think it’s badly sign posted. The entrance...More
If one wants to Know, Feel and Imagine how Ottoman Sultans used to live in Palaces, then Topkapi palace is the best place to visit. Its Big gates, beautiful lawns, different courtyard with different styles of buildings, the walkways, the harem, the museum, the kitchens,the...More

With so many unmissable attractions within a mere stroll of each other – and all set around the site of an ancient Byzantine hippodrome – Sultanahmet is an overwhelmingly popular tourist destination, and a prime location for visitors to be wowed on a truly epic scale. Beyond the wonders of the Blue Mosque, the Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and more, this relatively small area of Istanbul somehow manages to
retain an air of peace and calm. It offers visitors a significantly less celebrated but nonetheless pleasant network of quaint lanes and side streets, majestic panoramas of the Bosphorus, and an impressive assortment of accommodation options for all budgets and tastes.
