No lines. Very few people. Great audio-guide. Visiting the waterfront Beylerbeyi Palace is an altogether stress-free experience.

Located on the Asian side of Bosphorus, Beylerbeyi Palace is a beautiful palace which was residence of the Ottoman emperors during summer months. We were very touched by the beautiful reception hall with its running waters.

This is located on the Asian side just underneath the big suspension bridge. It's not easy to get to, so if you are limited for time I would suggest that Dolmabache palace is a better option. One benefit is that there are not a lot...More

the Asian side of the Bosphorus is one of Istanbul’s
most densely populated neighbourhoods. Once a Greek
colony, later a haven for people from across the
Mediterranean and the Middle East, this gateway to
Asia has been an active and diverse hub for eons.
Still, visitors to Uskudar are often more overcome by
its myriad treasures than by its many thousand
