Discover the Asian Side of Istanbul on this half-day tour. Cross the colossal Bosphorus Bridge and visit the beautiful Beylerbeyi Palace, followed by a tour of the Eyup district, which accommodates the Eyup Sultan Mosque.

Beylerbeyi Palace and Eyup District Half-Day Tour

After your guide collects you from your hotel, you’ll cross the Bosphorus Bridge to get to the Asian side of the city. This suspension bridge was finished in 1988 and is over one kilometer long.

Once you get to the Asian side, you will visit the Beylerbeyi Palace. This striking white marble building was commissioned by Sultan Abdülaziz in the nineteenth century as a summer residence.

The palace has three main entrances, six large halls, 24 rooms, all incredibly decorated, and a beautiful garden full of magnolias. Inside, the palace is embellished with Egyptian floor mats, crystal chandeliers from Bohemia, French clocks and beautiful china.

Back in the European side, the bus will head to the Suleymaniye Mosque located in one of the seven hills of Istanbul.

Anyone hungry? We'll go to a traditional restaurant where we'll eat a complete menu consisting of soup or cold appetizer, börek, chicken, meat or vegetable kebab with rice, and baklava or fruit. If you select the tour option without lunch, you'll have an hour of free time to grab a bite to eat from a local café. 

On a full stomach, you'll head to the Eyup district, a holy site for Muslims after the Mecca. It is home to numerous landmarks including the impressive Eyup Sultan Mosque and the Café Pierre Loti.

The last stop of the tour is to one of the city’s most famous coffee houses. Café Pierre Loti is situated at the top of Pierre Loti Hill with beautiful views of the Golden Horn.

The tour will end in the centre of Sultanahmet or the Taksim neighbourhood, whichever you prefer.
