Owner description: A historical site not to be missed. Just off Atatürk Boulevard you’ll see the impressive three double arches of the gates, which were erected in 130 to celebrate the visit of Emperor Hadrian. Legend has it that in ancient times, the queen of Sheba passed through the middle arch on her way to Aspensos and spent a happy night with King Salomon. With the exception of the columns, the arch is made from white marble and is richly decorated.

“Pretty cool”
Reviewed May 14, 2013

An imposing landmark near the edge of Kaleici, Hadrian's Gate is a beautiful reminder of the past and is an interesting clash of old and new as just across the street are modern shops and a glistening tramway.

Come during the day and night separately to see the different way it looks with sunlight and moonlight.

“Ok as a landmark”
Reviewed May 13, 2013

We found ourselves walking under the gate many times. Not a good idea to stop for long as you will get accosted by someone.

“All is in the name!!”
Reviewed May 12, 2013

Probably, because it's from Roman Impire time, that it's so famous, but finally you walk by without noticing it(was living 2 minutes from that gate

Quite and interesting historical site opposite a busy part of time. A chance to mix some culture with some retail therapy!

“Impressive”
Reviewed April 21, 2013

Find it yourself locals are clueless. Stands out you can't miss it and most of the other historic sites are walking distance in the old city.
