Day 1: Istanbul
Today explore the imperial Dolmabahce Palace, set on the shores of the Bosphorus River. Constructed in the 19th century, this opulent palace was at the centre of the Ottoman Empire in its final years, and home to the last Ottoman Sultan. Marvel at the extravagant decor, high ceilings and twinkling chandeliers of the Medhal Hall; find out how the Crystal Staircase got its name; and wander around the lavish Secretariat’s Room. Plus ask your guide why all the clocks in the palace have been stopped at the same time.
