It's at metro station 4. Levente and it's not so good for shopping but it's amazing the wax museum and the 360 view from the roof

Apart from the diverse stores and restaurants in the food court, you really must go up to the observatory floor (up on the 54th)! For 18 TL per person, you can get the most beautiful, panoramic view of the city from the top of the tallest building in Istanbul. On that floor, there is a cafe where you can enjoy... More

I waited for a beautiful, crisp winter day before going to the top of Sapphire. (By the way, if you pronounce Sapphire as we do in English, many Turks won't understand - they pronounce it more like "Sa-fear") Tickets are 18TL or 15 for students - rather pricey but I was willing to see if it was worth it. It's... More

On a rather high sea level, the view from the tower will give you probably all the view of Istanbul. You'll be able to spot the old city, the two bridges between the asian and european side, and even the 3rd bridge that is currently under construction. Inside theres a small restaurant which is a great place to dine high... More

You need to first take the subway (get out at the 4 Levent station). after that some security and then go up some floors to the entrance of the skydeck. With a quick ride on the elevator you are quickly on the top floor of this skyscraper in Istanbul. On the lower floor it offers views from behind glass but... More

The view from the observation deck is absolutely amazing ! The best view of the whole Istanbul. Seeing Istanbul from there makes you understand how big this city is and how wide its complexity is. It is very easy to reach. If you want to reach it from the historical center, you can take the Marmaray from Sirkeci to Yenikapi... More
