Galata Bridge, Istanbul Reviews
Our hotel was close, to the north of the bridge, so we strolled across many times, day and night. Good views from the upper level with crowds of other people crossing and fishermen with their rods all along. You can have a cheap dinner in one of the many fish restaurants on the lower level where the ambiance is nice at night.
Interesting place. There are a lot of restaurants under the bridge and live music during the evening amd night. Food is not so good but if you want to have a fun and you are not hungry go there.
Great and very living location for a walk. The restaurants are nothing special food wise but with a great atmosphere. We walked here several times to enjoy the feeling of relaxation on the top from the fishermen's catching small fishes. In case you consider buying the fish from them take into account the number of boats sailing there and amount of pollution in the water. I am not sure it is all that healthy 😊
A very cool bridge with a lot of seafood restaurants, walking path, a great view and enough space for fishing. But the car parking space is very limited, so be concirned about it when you visit. Also there is a jetty to get ferry ride here
Nice if you don't hotel there. Make sure to visit only. Too busy
