Take a trip “up” to the 14th century with a tower of great functioning in history

While some towers are colonial buildings, some are watch towers or take-off runways for the adventurers. Well, Galata Tower has been all of these in its almost 700 years of life. Built by Genoese colonialists, the tower presents the history of three different nations as the Ottomans claimed the Galata Tower during the conquer of Constantinople, after which it was turned into a fire lookout tower after serving as a dungeon during the Ottoman period.

About Galata Tower

As one of the tallest buildings of its time, the famous Hezarfen Ahmed Çelebi used the tower’s roof as the take-off point of his flight between continents. The Galata Tower enables the people on top to have a 360-degree view of Istanbul. It is one of the symbols of the city, and one of the things that make it so great is that it is quite accessible and close to the other places that you may want to visit during a grand Istanbul tour. But you are always welcome to just be mesmerized by the panoramic Istanbul view or the historical artifacts that recounts the story of Istanbul from very early on.

Take a glance down at the city!

Taking the great city of Istanbul with ease is possible in the Galata Tower with Istanbul Tourist Pass. With Istanbul Tourist Pass, you get a free ticket and no waiting queue advantages!
