The medieval Galata Tower gives a fairytale feeling to the hilly Beyoelu district, on the north part of the Golden Horn. Topped by a conical tiled steeple and gold finial, the 67 meter high stone tower was built by the Genoese in 1348. Explore the outdoor observation place at the top for a marvelous panorama reaching to Sultanahmet, have dinner or a snack at the tower-top restaurant, or view a Turkish belly-dancing show inside the nightclub.
