    A place to be if you want to enjoy one of the best views in the city. The price can be too expensive but its well worth it. Take your time up there :)

    One of the most important touristic attraction, cultural and so historical. Located at the end of Pedestranian Street. Possible to climb up, for one of the best viewsbof the city. A must-see spot.

    Amazing Byzantine era landmark. Built by the Genoese community of Constantinople it was dedicated to Jesus Christ and was called Christ Tower. (Latin Christea Turris).

    Incredible views. Great spot for panoramic photos (if that's your kinda thing). Go in the morning for the views, then drink tea at the cafe at the bottom in the afternoon sun.

    25TL for this? Check it out from outside, but then go to a rooftop restaurant with a view, grab a tea and enjoy a much better and comfortable experience. Galata is a trap!

    Rather expensive. The scenery is not splendid, lots of people, lack of space. Better from the outside than inside.

    Such a gorgeous view. A must see! Try the stuffed aubergine and lamb shank at the restaurant. Make reservation next to a good window to watch the sunset.
