Topkapi Palace Museum
The Topkapi Palace was the primary residency of the sultans. It is a complex with heaps of buildings a huge garden area overlooking the Bosporus. I was impressed when I entered the first room and couldn’t believe that the rooms were getting more impressive the more you see. There are classy decorated domes and mosaics, simply splendid! The entrance fee is 25 TL for the palace complex. If you want to visit the Harem as well which is the area were the sultan’s family and their servants lived undisturbed, you have to pay another 15 TL. Both is included in the Museum Pass.
We took red line till Zeytinburgu and from there tram till Sirkeci for 6 lira. You have maps available in all the metros which can be very handy and are free.
