The Leander’s Tower (From The Sea): This is a small and attractive tower built on an islet at the entrance to the Bosphorus. It is one of the symbols of İstanbul. Used in the past as a watchtower and a lighthouse, it has been preserved in its 19th Century appearance.
Beylerbeyi Palace (From The Sea): Built on orders of the Ottoman Sultan Abdulaziz (1861-1876), Beylerbeyi is a delightful, if ornate, imperial residence with a fountain in the main salon, the usual sumptuous chambers, Bohemian crystal chandeliers, Sèvres and Chinese vases, and pleasant gardens.
Dolmabahce Palace (From The Sea) : Dolmabahçe Palace was ordered by the Empire’s 31st Sultan, Abdulmecid I, and built between the years 1843 and 1856. Previously, the Sultan and his family had lived at the Topkapı Palace, but as the medieval Topkapı was lacking in contemporary style, luxury, and comfort, as compared to the palaces of the European monarchs, Abdulmecid decided to build a new modern palace near the site of the former Besiktas Palace, which was demolished.
