We went up the tower in Jan, it was cold but we'll worth the 15 minute wait outside to go up the lift! At the top the walk way around is narrow so you wait for people to come and scuttle around the many people...More
I rented an apartment near the Galata Tower with my family recently (last week of Dec 2018 until early Jan 2019). It was a new experience for all of us with the weather, people, ambiance the attractions around Galata Tower. First, there are many chic...More
One of the oldest watch tower which gives you 360 views of both the Sultanahmet District and Taksim area. You can have great views for both day and night but be prepared for long queue lines in order to get up there.

Istanbul’s most famous street, pedestrianized Istiklal Caddesi (Independence Avenue), throbs day and night and offers a fantastic array of architectural sights, shops, treats, and throngs upon teeming throngs of people. At the avenue’s northeastern end is expansive Taksim Square, thought by many to be the very heart of the city, with many of Turkey’s most renowned restaurants and some of Europe’s most happening
nightlife in close proximity. In striking contrast, Beyoglu’s less trafficked areas – such as the affluent Cihangir and the antiques district of Cukurcuma – exude Old World charm and provide contemplative calm and splendid diversion via an assortment of cozy cafes, attractive boutiques, and quiet lanes.
