Generally, I respect attractions, which you can not only watch but also to touch, so to speak. Especially if this landmark fortress or castle, and you can climb on them (almost) without any restrictions. Rumeli Hisarı belongs to this class, no doubt. Cheap ticket (only TL10), a small number of people (if you visit in the morning), and almost complete freedom of action (I was not allowed only to the large tower - I do not know whether the tower closed at all or it was an unfortunate day). One and a half hours (quietly and slowly) continuous pleasure - to climb the steep stairs without handrails (by the way, be careful with this - sometimes exceeds the critical fall height), making stunning photos of the fortress and the Bosphorus. The pleasure derived from the visit for me personally comparable to visit the Galata Tower, Hagia Sophia and the Sultan's Palace combined.
