Begin with pickup at your Istanbul accommodations or cruise port, then travel to Dolmabahce Palace in an air-conditioned coach. Follow a guide through some of the palace’s 365 rooms and 22 saloons, which were conceived by the 31st sultan of the Ottoman Empire, Abdülmecid II.
Learn the background and history of the palace, the first European-style palace in Istanbul, and take in the best of the Dolmabahce’s collections. Dolmabahce Palace contains a remarkable assortment of furniture from around the world, with hand-carved antiques, colorful upholstery, and hand-made carpets. See Ottoman and Turkish artifacts with the backdrop of Dolmabahce’s over-the-top gold and crystal: 14 tons of gold were used to cover the ceilings in gold leaf, and Dolmabahce has the largest collection of Bohemian and Baccarat crystal chandeliers in the world.
At the end of your Dolmabahce Palace tour, this excursion concludes with drop-off at your Istanbul accommodations.
Please Note: Dolmabahce Palace is closed on Mondays and Thursdays.
