It is located in the Old City. The entrance ticket is 12 manat each which is not worth climbing so many stairs. You can view it from outside and take pictures from the roadside. There are many souvenir shops and restaurants nearby

Maiden Tower is better from the outside than from the inside. There are many steps and one doesn't see much. So just look at it from the outside and admire.

Awesome little museum inside the tower. If you have a Student ID you get a discount. Incredible view of Baku from the top as well
