Visit the Galata Tower

Get a bird ’s eye view from Galata Tower. The view of Istanbul from this tower is so beautiful. Without watching Istanbul from Galata Tower don’t leave from Istanbul. 

It was built in 1348 at the apex of fortified walls. After the Ottoman conquest, it was used to house prisoners of war and later became an observatory. In the 1960s, the tower was restored and a nice but not the best restaurant and nightclub were added. Ascend to the 360-degree viewing gallery, with commanding views of the entire sprawling cosmopolite city.
