"Galata Tower" Galata Tower Tip by realde14

Galata Tower, Istanbul: 99 reviews and 234 photos

  Galata Tower
by realde14

The Galata Tower, built by the Genovese in the 14th century is around 60 metres tall and offers the best views on old Istanbul's skyline with its mosques and castles. The sunset over the Golden Horn is especially beautiful. Well worth a short visit.
