Description

Spend a half-day exploring the sights of Istanbul with an expert guide and see some of the most important locations in the recent history of this ancient city. See the last palace of the Ottoman sultans and the new Modern Art Museum for a look at the area's enduring history and culture.

Built in the 19th century to give the Ottoman Empire a modern centre of power to rival the capitals of Western Europe, Dolmabahçe Palace offers a vision of exquisite luxury. Explore the palace's Selamlık wing for a look at traditional Ottoman life.

At the Istanbul Museum of Modern Art, you can find exhibits of contemporary artwork, prominently featuring the work of Turkish artists. Take a walking tour of the Balat neighbourhood, Istanbul's traditional Jewish quarter, and pay a visit to the 16th-century Rüstem Pasha Mosque to see the intricate decorations on its famous Iznik tiles.
