At 67 meters (219 feet) high, the Galata Tower rules over the Istanbul skyline, offering great views of the old city and its surroundings. The medieval stone tower, known as the Tower of Christ, was the tallest building in Istanbul when it was built in 1348.
Today there is a restaurant and cafe on its upper floor. With its essential role in Istanbul’s skyline, Galata Tower is the optimum spot to catch a panoramic view of Istanbul. By using the tramway, it will take 15 minutes to the tower or you can walk through İstiklal street from Taxim square or Karakoy Port.
