    Also known as the Maiden's Tower, this tower built in 408 BC still stands beautifully today. Take a boat trip to this former lighthouse to admire city views from the cafe and restaurant inside.

    The Maiden’s Tower is one of Istanbul’s most instantly recognizable landmarks. The name `Maiden`s Tower` has its roots in the more popular story relating a maiden`s misfortune.

    One of the most popular attractions of Istanbul. Get there by boat,take a break at the restaurant, read its legendary tales at the stairs, and enjoy Istanbul's 360-degree view at the viewing platform.

    An iconic landmark on Istanbul’s skyline. The Maiden’s Tower has a rich history. Located on a tiny islet off the Asian side of Istanbul the best way to go these is taking boats from Uskudar.

    There is a restaurant in the tower and a small café upstairs. You can get up behind the bar of the restaurant, it's quite hidden.
