Galata - the round tower, the Skydeck offers spectacular views of Istanbul.

Located the famous tower in the Beyoglu district right opposite the Galata bridge. The tourists arriving in the city for the first time, this may start your tour of the city, from here a good view of the Bosphorus, two bridges, the Golden horn, Topkapi Palace and Sultanahmet.

To get to the observation deck of the tower to do a few steps to stand in a queue that moves slowly and the waiting time usually takes 30 minutes, and then paying the entrance 25 Turkish Lira, the Elevator to get upstairs.

The round tower and sightseeing is clockwise in the evening people come here to enjoy the millions of lights, and in the afternoon to explore the city and appreciate its attractiveness, build routes, where to go in the first place.

There is always a lot of people, so even to be photographed on a beautiful background, you will need to expect.

In the tower there is a cafe where the prices are quite high, and the bottom of the gift shop, where prices are also higher than in the markets and shops.
