There was a good wiev from the top of the Red tower. But inside the tower wasn't much of anything. Few miniature boats and little bit of history, but I was waiting more. And you need to buy a ticket to the Red Tower.

Visited the red tower in April. Fortunately it was not yet summer and hot - the steep stairs were tough even now. We never made it to the top floor as we went walking to the wall admiring the views from there. The exhibition was interesting, but I would appreciate if there were texts in several languages

This Tower has history but nothing near to what there is to see on the hillside where the castle lies.

Kizil Kule, or the red tower as it is more commonly known, is a real sight to see in Alanya and stands as a symbol for the city. Represented on the city's flag also this thirteenth century tower stands overlooking the harbour and is a must see building in this wonderful Turkish city. Cheap to enter and fairly easy to... More

I have told more about in text about city tour n Alanya but I have to repeat - this is a place that worth going to despite it may be hard to go up and down on steep stairs. During our staying in May 2012 there was performed an ehxibitiion about Seljuks.
