The Beylerbeyi Palace located close to the Bosphorus Bridge was commonly used as a summerhouse for the Sultans and a guesthouse for important visitors to the state. Hosting notable guests including Emperors and Kings. Described as a labor of love, in this case by the Ottoman Sultan for the Empress Eugenie, wife of Napoleon III of France. The Sultan, Abdülaziz, was the first to travel outside the empire, paying a state visit to France and England in the 1860s and is said to have become infatuated with the Empress. In 1861, anticipating the visit of the French royal couple, Abdülaziz ordered the construction of the marble palace. Construction continued until 1865, and, as planned, the Empress Eugenie, visited as the Sultan’s first guest. Tales of love between the two continue to this day.
Camlica Hill is the highest point in Istanbul at 288 metres above sea level and located on the Asian side of Istanbul. Featuring panoramic views over the Bosphorus and Marmara Sea. On a clear day, visitors can see the Princes Islands and the Uludag Mountains. Enjoyed particularly at sunset, when visitors experience one of the most unique city skylines in the world. There is a park, picnic area, some small trails, and cafes located at the summit, which are surrounded by pine trees and flowers.
Egyptian Bazaar (Spice Market)
Egyptian Spice Bazaar is housed in a building that was built in 1660 and named after the goods traded from India and the far east, which arrived in Istanbul from Egypt during Ottoman times.The Egyptian Spice Bazaar consists of a series of covered streets featuring one hundred shops and two restaurants along its gates. The “Spice market” was given its nickname as the majority of the shops sold herbs and spices.
