Two continents

Half day (by bus)

On this tour we offer you an  intercontinental travel between Europe and Asia across the  Bosphorus Bridge, that links the two continents and the two parts of the city, divided by the strait of the same name. On the Asian side, we will visit  Beylerbeyi Palace, the former summer residence of Ottoman power that hosted meetings and receptions to important personalities. We will also have a nice time at the  Çamlica Hill, one of the highest point of the city. Finally we will let you free time for shopping.

Bosphorus Bridge: The Bosphorus Bridge is a suspension bridge that connects the Asian side to the European side of Istanbul, across the strait of the same name. Opened in 1973, it has 1074 meters long and 39 wide, with a height of 64 meters above the sea.

Beylerbeyi Palace: Beylerbeyi Palace is the second palace built in the Bosporus’s shores, this one in the Asian side. The palace has three main entrances, 6 large rooms and 24 rooms finely decorated. The Egyptian mats on the floors, Bohemian crystal chandeliers on the ceilings, French clocks and Chinese and Japanese porcelain are among the most important decorative elements of this building.

Çamlica Hill: This is  one of the highest points of Istanbul. At the top you can admire the stunning views of the city and the  Bosphorus and relax in one of its gardens and traditional cafes.

Shopping: Free time for shopping. Since  Turkey is one of the best leather manufacturing countries in the world, here you can get excellent products. We will pass by some shopping with amazing deals and where fashion shows take place often.
