Can't give it top rating as don't allow photos though it is understandable as you'd never get through the place if you could. Good place to visit on a rainy or overcast day as there is so much to wonder at inside. When you come to the final Audience Hall you're jaw will fall open of its own accord even after all that has come before.

This palace has its place in history, with its baroque appearance and the last resting place of Ataturk, you would want to visit this beautiful palace with its beautiful gardens. However, the tours are a bit annoying, too much detail on the different attributes of the palace. Personally, I am not interested to know which vase was fabricated where, those kind of things. A lot of repetitive information.

Keep 2-3 hours for this. Try and get there as early as you can to avoid too long a line. Check before you go cause often the President moves around in that area and they may close it down.

At the counter, you will have the option to take a complete tour or go to a few sections. I would strongly recommend play that little bit more but go everywhere.

No need for any guides for this place. The way it works is that they let about 20-30 people into each section at a time and those people are accompanied by a guide who will explain everything.

The have a few cafes in there as well if you want to grab a bite or tea etc.

A mini versailles, but the gardens are not so good. A long walk through streets. Worth it, but I would take a tram next time
