Best for Posing - Expert review of Rumeli Fortress
One of the most prominent sights from the Bosphorus Tour, this massive hillside fortress was built in four months as part of the successful siege of Constantinople. Today, it’s a particularly picturesque place to enjoy dramatic views of the strait and climb with few restrictions around the fort’s steep and sometimes crumbling walls.
Admission is a steal at 3 lira.
