Istanbul is unlike any other city on earth. It’s been the capital of three historic empires: Roman, Byzantine and Ottoman. It’s the bridge connecting Europe and Asia. It’s an experience in and of itself. Yet as more travel options emerge, every moment in one destination is a moment taken from another. It’s time to explore those rare places that connect east and west, that bring the entire globe to your doorstep. That’s the way our world is headed. That’s Galataport.

Galataport is a distinct, tasteful blend of the present and the past, a haven of modern amenity alongside carefully restored monuments of yesterday.
