    Hi there,

    Topkapi Palace is one of the main attractions in Istanbul Turkey and it is a fascinating one. You can see portraits of Turkey’s past sultans, information about Topkapi Palace history, as well as old relics from the Ottoman Empire.

    There are a number of other great attractions in Istanbul besides Topkapi Palace such as the Hagia Sophia, the Blue Mosque, and the Turkish and Islamic Art Museum.

    Hope this helps

    Istanbul is really very beautiful place for your trip.. you can easily savor the different architecture of the Anatolian and the European side, highlighting the way in which the blend of these two cultures underpins the nature of Istanbul.

    With variety of interesting tourists places including Topkapi Palace, Haghia Sophia, Blue Mosque, Prince's Islands, Ephesus, Underground Cistern, Galata Tower and Cappadocia, Istanbul is a magnificent city to visit.

    Ephesus is a great outdoor museum and the underground Cistern is an impressive building which consists of breathtaking interiors. Princes' Islands are a group of nine islands located in the Sea of Marmara, can be easily reached by ferry from Istanbul. Explore the sandy beaches and pinewood scenery of this popular summer resort by walking or bicycling. Istanbul has something for everyone especially the Turkish baths - whether you prefer to soak, steam or to have a massage, there are many wonderful Turkish Baths are available in Istanbul. In addition to wonderful attractions and warm weather all year-round, Istanbul has many luxury
    Turkey hotels and shopping centres. Don't miss to visit "Grand Bazaar" (the biggest enclosed bazaar of Turkey) which has more than 4,000 shops, Turkish baths, mosques, tea houses and fountains. Here you can buy almost anything from carpets & jewelry to Turkish Delight & spices, so it would be a interesting shopping place not to miss. Book your Istanbul tour online and explore it's museums, churches, mosques, palaces and much more with great fun :)
