What Do I Need to Know About the Galata Tower?

The Galata Tower might be intimidatingly tall, but an elevator minimizes stair climbing by transporting visitors from the ground floor almost to the top.

If you visit in the summer, keep in mind that this tends to be the busiest season in Istanbul, and the tower’s viewing platforms can get crowded.
