Galata Tower, Istanbul

Galata Tower, Istanbul

Galata Kulesi in the local language, the Galata Tower is one of Istanbul's highest and oldest towers. You know what that means. Up top, you get a panoramic view of the old town and as far as the eye can see.

Did you know that the first flying Turk jumped from the tower and flew over the Bosporus strait?

The date was 17th century Ottoman Empire when Hezarfen Ahmet Celebi studied air flow and copied the wings of birds to pull off his stunt. He landed at the Uskudar district of Istanbul's Asian side. From the tower, he flew a 4-mile distance. That's an amazing feat in that time period.

It will be interesting to see with your own eyes the flight he took. Fitted with an elevator, you won't have trouble going up the tower. You need to climb 3 more floors by stairs, but the view is worth it.

A visit to the Galata Tower is one of the highlights in Istanbul, whether you explore it during a layover or with a half-a-day tour.

Book a tour with La Vacanza today and you will see so much more. Aside from the Galata Tower, your itinerary will include a visit to the Hippodrome, Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia Museum, Topkapi Palace, Caferaga Medresesi, and other historic areas in Istanbul.
