Grab an ice cream (or corn or kumpir) and enjoy the way up to the top. The scenery is very beautiful with the surrounding flowers and the view of Istanbul and Bosphorous strait is breathtaking.. Take lots of pictures!

Çamlıca Tepesi is one of the seven hills of Istanbul where the city is settled.Here you are going to see the most beautiful views of the city only.Scenery is amazing...What a pity that this hill is not cared very much by the local establishments and the municipalities as the trash's every where and its neighbourhood is very much uncared.Stay away...

If you are interested to visit a place in Instabul that will give you almost complete view of the city, then Camlica Hill is the place. Beautiful park has cobblestone blocks, and walking the path you will be able to enjoy great views.

This place is just awesome! At Çamlıca park you get the best view of Istanbul, the best spot for a friends/family/couple picnic and to take a nap in the shades or just enjoy the scenery. You can take a time lapse of the sunset, or plan a special celebration there ! It's simply perfect!

Phenomenal view of Istanbul from which you can orient yourself as to Istanbul in Europe, the location of the Golden Horn, and Istanbul in Asia. Well worth the trip up to the top. Very busy place on Saturday and Sunday as the local people like to get out and visit their parks and their historical sites.

Staying in Uskudar

Neighborhood Profile
Uskudar
Home to more than half a million residents, Uskudar on the Asian side of the Bosphorus is one of Istanbul’s most densely populated neighborhoods. Once a Greek colony, later a haven for people from across the Mediterranean and the Middle East, this gateway to Asia has been an active and diverse hub for eons. Still, visitors to Uskudar are often more overcome by its myriad treasures than by its many thousand residents. And with fairytale settings such as the “Maiden’s Tower” as well as grand examples of Ottoman Era architecture, plenty of parks, a gorgeous and lengthy coastline, and some of Turkey’s holiest sites, there’s no end to the sightseeing possibilities. Easily reached from the city’s European shores via a steady network of ferries, time spent in Uskudar reveals a “real life” Istanbul that many who experience find extremely fascinating.
