Full description
On this tour of Ottoman splendors, you will visit Topkapi Palace, the great palace of the Ottoman sultans from the 15th to the 19th centuries, and the New Mosque completed in 1665.

At Topkapi Palace, you will see an exquisite collection of precious gems, jewelry thrones of sultans, robes worn by the sultans and their families, miniatures, the Holy Mantle and the Chamber of Sacred Relics. 

Last but by not least, you will visit the New Mosque. Originally named Valide Sultan Mosque, the construction was ordered by Safiye Sultan, the wife of Sultan Murad III and the mother of his successor Sultan Mehmed III, hence the name Valide Sultan meaning Queen Mother. The mosque is an Imperial Mosque and one of the famous architectural landmarks of Istanbul.
