This attraction is beautiful in the day and night. It gives the European city feeling. If you can go inside and get a birds eye view of the Bosphorus, that will be amazing.

It's a really beautiful place. I went with my wife in 2019. It was invaluable to walk on those streets in winter and on a snowy day. People are very nice. They help you in all matters. Prices are very affordable.

We had an amazing 360 views of Istanbul and the magnificent Bosphorus from the top of the Galata Tower, we had a great time, it wasn't too crowded being a saturday during the pandemic, everything was pretty much closed but we really enjoyed the visit

This is one of the most visited locations in Istanbul. While interesting, it was not that exciting. You can take pictures and walk along to Taksim Square.
