Take in dramatic panoramic views of the city and traditional Turkish fare atop Galata Tower. A recognizable symbol of the city's skyline, the tower stands 66.9 m (219.5 ft) high. Often referred to as the "Tower of Christ," it was the tallest and most important building during the time it was being built. Have a meal or enjoy a drink at the restaurant and cafe located at the top. After hours the upper portion turns into a lively nightclub. For travelers who use our world travel planner, Istanbul holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Galata Tower and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.
Galata Tower reviews
Be carful where you spend your money. Lot of scammers trying to stole your money. They try to force you to pay more and more more »
Truly amazing views here. You see Istanbul from a very different vantage point and you get a sense of why this was such vital trading point over the centuries. You see the Golden Horn, the Bosphorous.... more »
One of my favorite places in Istanbul. It looks great outside and if you want to see a panoramic view of Istanbul you can go up and take some amazing shots. Inside there is a small cafe but in high season you most probably won't be able to enjoy the view because of people outside.
The most beautiful tower in Istanbul. You can go to the roof and enjoy the beautiful view of Istanbul. Very nice scenery specially during sunset. The place is most of the time crowded, so you've better time for it. Or you can just take photo in front of it on the street and visit the galata square during night, the ambiance is really nice. Must visit!
