  • One of my favorite places in Istanbul. It looks great outside and if you want to see a panoramic view of Istanbul you can go up and take some amazing shots. Inside there is a small cafe but in high season you most probably won't be able to enjoy the view because of people outside.
  • The most beautiful tower in Istanbul. You can go to the roof and enjoy the beautiful view of Istanbul. Very nice scenery specially during sunset. The place is most of the time crowded, so you've better time for it. Or you can just take photo in front of it on the street and visit the galata square during night, the ambiance is really nice. Must visit!
