    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.

    Wandering around Galata tower's narrow streets is as good as Galata tower's amazing view

    Awesome views of the old city. I would recommend visiting in the evening to take good photographs of the panoramic views of the city.

    Truly distinct tower and a good way to orient yourself within Galata, which is itself an incredibly vibrant neighbourhood.

    Excellent view of the city but 25tl is very expensive for 10 minutes that you actually are going to stay upstairs...

    One of must visit place in Istanbul, but a lot of people want to see the landscape from this tower. So you should stay in a queue.

  • Samira s.

    It is one of the dominating landmarks in istanbul, it was used as a watchtower.(16 floors/67 M).make sure to enjoy the views 360° from the outer balcony because they're panoramic and breathtaking.

    This tower looks like it would be better suited as Rapunzel’s home in a fairy tale. Actually it’s my favorite place in istanbul, it brings back so many memories.
