Istanbul is a location in 80 Days. It is the capital of the Ottoman Empire and is situated between Europe and Asia at the gates of the Black Sea.
Like many destinations visited in the game, Istanbul is experiencing political turbulence as the citizens reject the Sultan's rule in favour of constitutional monarchy. Tourist attractions in Istanbul include the marbled mosques, the historic palaces, and the famous Grand Bazaar.
Passepartout will wake up dressed in Harem Silks and barely able to remember the events of the previous night in which he was dared to infiltrate the strictly female-only quarters of Topkapi Palace.
Whilst exploring the city, Passepartout finds himself caught up in a riot to protest the Sultan's plans for modernising his empire with automatons. Luckily, thanks to the Harem Silks, he is mistaken for a woman and consequently avoids any real danger.
