We begin by driving across the first Bosphorus Bridge, which for a time was the world's longest suspension bridge, and head for the summit of Camlica Hill, which affords panoramic views of Istanbul, the Sea of Marmara and the Princes' Islands. From here a short drive brings us to the Palace of Beylerbeyi on the shore of the Bosphorus.

Perhaps the most elegant of the late Ottoman  palaces, Beylerbeyi boasts six sumptuously furnished reception halls with Bohemian crystal chandeliers and Sevres and Chinese vases, including a main salon with an indoor fountain. Guests to have stayed at the palace include Empress Eugenie of France, Shah Nasruddin of Persia and Grand Duke Nicholas of Russia.
