My partner insisted on visiting this fort, as he'd been reading about the Crusades; I went along reluctantly at first, and enjoyed our visit far more than I expected. There are many steps - some quite steep and precarious for those with poor balance. I found a way to climb them all, and was rewarded with many beautiful views of the Bosphorous and the fort itself. I believe we walked every path and wall, peered in every nook and cranny. It's a bit of a trip to get there (tram and bus and walk); quite worth it!
