Galata Tower, Istanbul: 99 reviews and 234 photos
Tarihi Galata Kulesi (Galata Tower) Galata Tower is regarded as one of the oldest towers in the world. It was originally built of wood in 527 by Byzantine Emperor Anastasius Oilozus and reconstructed by Genoese as Christea Turris (Christ Tower) using stack stone. The tower consists of 8 floors and is 66.90 metres. To get to the tower you can catch the ferry to Karakoy. We walked across the Galata bridge and then up the hill. Ask people for directions.The 360 degree views from the Tower are outstanding. There is also a night club and restaurant every night.
