    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.

    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...

  • 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.

    Although the queue is not long, you may spend an hour standing in it. And you can use stairs to come down.
