Dolmabahce Palace - Cable Car and Bosphorus On Boat

Highlights

After a pick-up at your central Istanbul hotel, you will visit the Dolmabahce Palace, which, in the 19th century was the principal residence and the administrative center during the days of the Turkish Ottoman Empire. Admire its splendid Baroque exterior and mixture of traditional and European interior styles. Enjoy a brief stroll in the Yildiz Royal Gardens, a real respite from the hectic atmosphere of the city. Next on your full-day tour is lunch at a local restaurant, followed by a drive along the old city walls to Eyup Square. Built by Constantine the Great and expanded by Emperor Theodosius in the 4th Century A.D. the walls protected the capital of the Eastern Roman Empire for 900 years. From here you’ll take the cable car up Pierre Loti Hill to admire the panoramic views of the city and the Golden Horn estuary below. It’s just a short drive to the Eminonu Pier, where you’ll board a ferry for a 90-minute cruise along the Bosphorus strait, which runs through the city of Istanbul, between the Asian and European continents. Your expert local guide will tell you about the Ottoman palaces, ancient fortresses, suspension bridges, and upscale shore villages of typical Ottoman architecture that you’ll see along the way. After the tour, you will be transferred back to your hotel.
