The Topkapi Palace of Istanbul is one of the most interesting place to visit, maybe the first one between the many Istanbul attractions. A complete visit may takes the whole day if you’re eager to see the entire compound, but as Istanbul has a lot of monuments and attractions to see, I suggest you to feel the ottoman fascination of the Topkapi Palace in half a day. The most beautiful and interesting place in the Topkapi is the Harem, where you can feel the history, touch and breath the Ottoman Empire, pretending to be the Sultan of Istanbul in his rooms or a concubin in the courtyard. Visit also the Baghdad Pavillion and the Library of Ahmed III.
