    Great palace! We were in Nov, it was cold and not so nice. Of course better to go there in spring-summer when all gardens are blooming.

    Impressive 15th century palace. This thriving royal court would have been filled by sultans, courtiers, eunuchs and concubines. Wonderfully lavish interiors and great views across the Bosphorus.

    Culinary section is awesome. See the extravagance of palace cuisine and how it was affected by European culture after 17th century. You even can know where the kitchen acquired its ingredients from.

  • James

    Go see the harem, it's definitely worth it for an extra 15TL. better yet, for 85TL get the museum pass since just the palace and the harem are 45TL

  • Omar B.

    It is worth visiting. I have a doubt about the thruth of the islamic relics. No pics are allowed! Organization is not so good. Some pple skip the long line while you are waiting.

    Be wary of taking a cab parked outside the palace. They're much more likely to rip you off.

    Don't ever eat or drink anything here. Extremely expensive just because it's a touristic site. They are trying to make fools out of you.
