About this tour

The focal point of lively Galata is the 14th-century Galata Tower, which has expansive views of the Bosphorus from its balcony. Below, the area’s narrow streets are home to chic bars, old-school restaurants, and small shops that sell odds and ends.

Centuries-old synagogues, churches, and mosques dot the neighbourhood, while the Galata Mevlevi House museum and cultural centre have performances by whirling dervishes. Let me be your guide and take you to Taksim square; we will talk about the history of the Republic of Turkey about how it was founded after the Ottomans. We will continue by visiting an orthodox church called Ayia Triada which has such an atmosphere. The itinerary includes more beautiful places like Plaza del Túnel and Torre de Galata where the tour will end if you have free time you would have to go up and see the beautiful view of the part ancient Istanbul
