...but I would want to have done it any other way. Crossed all kinds of city styles getting there, and hardly another tourist in site for most of it. Once there, we took in a nice, terraced café about halfway up the hill, and having got our breath back, sauntered up to the top for the most impressive view. Lots... More

If you go to the top of the hill then the view of the city is excellent. Even you will have a nice view of Bosphorous bridge. But be aware of the tour operators. They take you to half the way of the hill and stop at a coffee shop. You can have a view of the bridge but the... More

This is the highest mountain of Istanbul, and I have to say this city looks very beautiful. The view here is nice, but there are quite a lot of trees blocking the view. There ain't a lot of things to do, but if you enjoy beautiful view and can sit down and stare at it for an hour, it is... More

Went there one evening for the view - it was definitely worth it! You have view over most imoprtant things - Sultanahmet, Bosphorus Bridge. It's probably better to go there during sunsent and after dark it was really pretty.

Amazing views of Istanbul. Just dont go at sun set as the lighting isnt good for photos. It was a bit hazy the day we went so the photos were not the best. But still worth the trip up there

Asia is on a side, Europe is on the other... you can access easily from anywhere in istanbul.. I always choose to come to Kadikoy, then take the bus 14F or 14K to access to the Hill... there are few... More

There's a festive air when you arrive. Lots of food booths (a cup of corn was delicious!) and souvenir stands. There is a very nice restaurant at the top of the hill and you can watch ladies rolling Turkish dough. You can walk around the top of the hill and take in the sights of Istanbul. I will confess that... More
