Istanbul - Round trip

On Friday I took the ladies on a longer tram trip to the Dolmabaçe palace. This is one of the places that I like to visit again and again, it's really beautiful. And they are constantly renovating some parts so you get to see new things every time. We were lucky that despite the many people we got into the palace pretty fast because they just started a guided tour in German (it's not allowed to go in without a guide). It was impressive as always!

More tulips in the park!

Then we took the füniküler up to Taksim square and walked down Istiklal caddesi where besides other things we watches one of the Turkish ice cream sellers do his magic...

To end the full public transport tour we went down with the tünel train and on the tram back home.

In the evening we had dinner in a nice restaurant in the Sultanahmet area.

(sorry, not many details as I wrote this quite a while afterwards)
