View from the Galata Tower
Because it was a Saturday and the weather was unseasonably warm, a colleague and I set out on foot to get as much sight-seeing as possible crammed into our gorgeous day. The Galata Tower is a medieval stone tower that was a short walk from our hotel. When it was built in the 1300s it was the city’s tallest structure. The panoramic view it provides of the Istanbul peninsula was the perfect way to start our day! (I believe the bridge in this shot is the Ataturk Bridge.)

Very nice. Is this Istanbul?
Yes! Have you been? This was my first trip to Turkey.
Oh I am glad you had a beautiful weather while in Istanbul. Looking forward to see more photo from your day there.
We had GORGEOUS weather! I heard it was unseasonably warm which was just perfect!
Amazing view! 🙂
