Shared tour of Dolmabahce Palace

Shared tour of Dolmabahce Palace, Turkey

Set on the shores of the Bosphorus within extensive grounds, even from the outside the Dolmabahce Palace is an impressive sight.

The true scale of its opulence, however, can only really be appreciated inside the palace itself, which is sumptuously decorated from floor to ceiling, with gold and crystal.

Built in the mid-19th century, the palace became the home of the sultan and his family, and the administrative centre of the Ottoman republic until 1922. 

Entry to the palace is limited to 3,000 people per day, and visitors must join a guided tour.
