If you like walking and is fit enough, this is a nice 1 km walk (one way) across the bridge to catch different sights of the tourist and local boats going up and down the Bosphorous Straights. In the middle of the bridge you will find some fishermen busy with their daily catch. On each side of the bridge there are some stairs going down to the lower level of the bridge where a lot of different seafood restaurants are situated. Although it is quite windy here on the bridge (especially the southern side to the open Marmara Sea side) you get splendid views of the nearby Bosphorous Straights. The restaurants on the northern side have nice sitting sofas and are much warmer because of the afternoon sun setting in that direction. If you are a keen photographer you will get many photo opportunities on the Galata Bridge.
