I seem to have a lot of opinions in all of the Istanbul blog posts, here is another: Topkapi Harem > The Palace. I really wish you didn’t have to buy a ticket for the Palace to enter the Harem since the Harem is incredible and the Palace is meh. It is probs important to note that I am not a big museum person, I didn’t go into the Louvre when I was in Paris. Let me know your thoughts. Also I went to the Hagia Sofia…just gonna smack that in.
