About the tour

Topkapi palace is suited at the heart of the old Istanbul. This is the spot that was first chosen by Constantine the Great for his palace in 330 AD. Later replaced by Ottoman palace in the 1460s. This palace hosted the Ottoman Empire for about 400 years until they moved to their new palace. In this tour you will hear lots of stories about the Sultans’ life, their success of concurring, love stories, jealousies and greed between the Sultan’s wives.
