Galata Tower

Galata stands on the other side of the Golden Horn, which is also the place it takes its first recorded name. Pera was the first name of this place which means ''the other side''.

Starting from the beginning of the Roman Era, Galata had two importance.The first one was that this was the most important port as the water here was more stable than the Bosphorus.

Bosphorus is an important trade route between the Black Sea and Sea of Marmara, but the big problem was the currents being powerful and unpredictable. As a result, there was a significant need for a safe harbor.

Golden Horn was a natural harbor and a vital place, especially for the navy of the Romans. It is a bay with only one entrance from the Bosphorus. As this was not an open sea, there was nowhere to go in case of an attack.

Open everyday between 08:30 - 00:00 Last entrance is at 23: 00

The approximate duration is 45-60

Please meet your guide at the meeting point 10 minutes before the tour start time.
