  • Near the Galata Tower, in the business district, you can find these stairs. They are a bit weirdly shaped which makes it different. Take a nice picture here and move on.  more »

  • Yes it is just stairs (albeit helix ones), however if you are walking up to Galata and Istiklal from the Goldern Horn then it is a "must take" route to indulge in another selfie moment. My suggestion is you start at the ferry terminal and wind your way up through the myriad of hardware shops and eat a fish sandwich along the way. Great place.
  • Underwhelming, looks better in photos. It's worth climbing to the top where you'll reach a nice small street with cafes.
  • It is a staircase, but an interesting one, with a history. Cool for photoshoots.

  • Wrong position. Its actually located at Galata Kulesi Sokağı.
