    Old city - view from the Galata Tower

    Galata Tower , XIV century Genoese tower 67 meters height is a best place to see the sunset in Istanbul. From there you can see most of the areas of this huge city. Europe and Asia, the Golden Horn and Bosphorus, the minarets of the grand mosques, sultan's palace, bysantine acqueduct, tile roofs of Beyoglu, new and modern suburbs, bridges, countless boats and ferries.
    This is a view that you can't afford yourself to miss.

    From Eminonu you can have a nice view of the Galata Tower amongst the chimneys of the many ferries that come and go from this busy pier.
