Meet you at the cruise port of Istanbul, the airport or your hotel in the morning, for a tour of visiting ;

Dolmabahce Palace: This area was originally the bay where the navy anchored in the early periods when the Ottomans conquered Istanbul. Between 1611-1614, this bay had been filled in and a timber building with a large garden called "the Besiktas Palace" had been built with the order of Sultan Ahmet I. The land of the Besiktas Palace, which had become completely useless due to a fire, was chosen as the site of the new palace by Sultan Abdulmecit I, since it was by the sea side and close to the city center.
