  Galata Tower in Background
by Jmill42

Near the Galata Tower and right after crossing the Galata Bridge into the lower Tunel district, you have a choice of walking up the significant incline to the Beyogulu area, or take the 3rd oldest underground metro in the world, the Galata Funicular. While its condition is deteriorated, it still serves its purpose well and the degree of incline will make you thank yourself for not trying to walk.
