Asian Side Tour

Day 1

We pick you up from your hotel by our coach and professional guide.

We drive to Asian side by crossing over Bosphorus Bridge connecting Europe (left) and Asia (right). It is a gravity anchored suspension bridge with steel pylons and inclined hangers. The Bosphorus Bridge had the 4th longest suspension bridge span in the world when it was completed in 1973, and the longest outside the United States. At present, it is the 17th longest suspension bridge span in the world. Enjoy the view on our way!

Our first stop is Beylerbeyi Palace, located on the shore of Bosphorus after crossing the bridge to the down. Palace was ordered by the late Ottoman sultan Abdulaziz and built in 1865 by famous architects Sarkis Balyan and Agop Balyan, imperial architects of Armenian origins, in French neo-baroque style with a traditional Ottoman house plan. Beylerbeyi Palace is smaller if comparing with Dolmabahce, with its 24 rooms, but Hereke carpets, Bohemian crystal chandeliers, French clocks and valued porcelains are worth to see. There are also many oil paintings on the walls describing naval scenes, and Arabic inscriptions on the ceiling.

We continue to Camlica Hill on the Asian shores of the Bosphorus, there lies a high pine covered bill, atop which sits a restaurant. From here you can inhale the fresh Black Sea air, and possibly obtain the best views of the sprawling metropolis of Istanbul. After enjoying your complimentary tea, we drive back to the European side. You are leisurely free in the afternoon.

** Beylerbeyi Palace is closed on Mondays and Thursdays.
