  • Explore Istanbul's historic social and cultural hub of Galata
  • Walk through the busy Istiklal Caddesi and soak in the sights, sounds, and smells
  • Visit the iconic Galata Tower and see the magnificent city views

Discover one of the most storied districts in Istanbul, with a walking tour through the historic Galata neighborhood. Begin the morning tour from the bustling Taksim Square, the central hub of Galata, filled with restaurants, shops, and hotels. Then, walk through Istiklal Caddesi, historically known as the Grand Avenue of Pera Ottoman. Afternoon tours depart from the Eminonu area.

Galata Tower is one of the symbols of Istanbul; this historic monument was included in the UNESCO World Heritage Temporary List in 2013. It's thought to be one of the oldest towers in the world, dating back to 500 AD!

Next, you’ll pass by the Camondo Stairs, an Art Deco-style pedestrian stairwell with an eye-catching, ribbon-like design. Snap some photos by the stylish steps before heading to the SALT Galata Art Gallery.

This former bank building turned modern art gallery features numerous rotational exhibitions of contemporary art pieces you can view before heading to the iconic Galata Bridge.
