This was the last activity in our private tour and it was well worth the time it took to get here. Great views of Istanbul and very peaceful and quiet.

Camlica hill is the best place to sightsee in Istanbul.. It's the highest point in the city, so you can see everything from Atakoy and Zeytinburnu to the Sultanahmet district and the mosque to the Golden Horn, and finally to the Fatih Sultan Mehmet Bridge, Levent and Beykoz... You can see how big Istanbul is and how wide its complexity... More

We came here on our last day in Istanbul. It took us a while to get to Camlica Hill as we were trying to take the bus from Taksim Square. However, because it was on the day of the first anniversary of Taksim Sq. protests, the police were out in force. We had to find another connecting bus elsewhere. Once... More

This is a nice hill with great views from a very expensive cafe! The atmosphere is nice and great as a last strand on a tour however it is not worth the trip by yourself.

From Kadikoy, take the bus 14 F to Camlica stop. Be prepared for 15 minutes steep walking up the hill but well worth it. The views are amazing. Make sure that you have a sunny day. You can have a lunch in one of few restaurants.

I used to stay near to Camlica Tepesi and I can totally vouch for its view and food (wait for it...!). There are some outdoors sitting area and you can order local cay (tea) and drink, chat, absorb the awesome view. No matter how the weather goes you can find something pretty. I've been there in the morning, afternoon, misty,... More

The views from this point of the city are breathtaking. I recommend going with a guide who can drive you across the bridge right to the point of drop off. It's really a beautiful place and I am so glad we took the time to go. Be warned that there are some parts that have uneven footing. My son fell... More

It was such a cool experience to go from one continent to another all in the same city! From Camlica Hill, you get an awesome view of the European side of Istabul while standing on the Asian side. It is a great photo op, but try not to go in the early morning like we did. It was foggy and... More
