DAY 3

28th October 2015:

I want to come back in the Sultanhamet district during this day because there are other things to visit there and it is very close to the hostel:

Topkapi Palace:

I could have visited it on the day before but it is closed on Tuesday. Then, that is for this reason that I want to come back in Sultanahmet and this is why I left some things to visit.

This huge palace is really worth a visit. There are some beautiful gardens around it and inside, it is full of gold.

The entrance fee is 20 TL which is about 6 euros for the palace and 15 TL for the harem. Both are worth to visit.

This is how it looks like from the entrance:

An then, that is a view from inside:

Gulhane Park:

After the morning there, it will be time to get some lunch around there. We will probably take some fast food and then move to the Gulhane Park to have a walk and relax in the afternoon.

This is located just next to the Topkapi Palace and it is quite huge.

I think that it would be a perfect place to meet with some people that we might know during the trip.

Then, in the afternoon, one of my friend advised me to walk along the Bosphore, and then have a drink on a rooftop at the Ciragan Palace Hotel, located on the European side, where we can have an amazing view. It is apparently quite expensive but it is worth it as you can see the boats in front of you and it is a kind of spectacle.

Then, in the evening, we might come back in the hostel and chill with the people there, go on the rooftops to do a shisha for instance. That would be a great plan.
