Timings for Topkapi Palace and Bosphorous Cruise

Hi,

I am planning to visit Istanbul in late May and had a couple of questions -

- What are the hours of operation for Topkapi Palace during last week of May?
- What are the Bosphorous cruise timings? I was thinking of doing one of the two options -
- Go from Eminou to Anadolu Kavağı and return by cruise
- Go from Eminou to Rumeli Kavağı and return by land

Specifically, how long would it take for the cruise and what are the time options during morning and afternoon

Thanks a lot in advance for the information.

Regards,

Hi Alks;
Topkapi open daily except Tuesdays between 09:00 am to 17:00 pm, last ticket sales at 16:00 hours.

Do the morning cruise from Eminonu with public ferry If I am not mistaken 10:30 am. But here is an updated information:

Thanks for the great information Murat

The links are really useful. The Topkapi Palace website that you posted above indicates that they have summer time from 15 Apr 2012 onwards so the timings are till 19:00.
