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.

We were there just in time to check out what is most famous for, its sunset views of Istanbul and Bosporus. Once there I observed that it is the most... More

On top of the hill is a food foundation, it has good food for reasonable prices. The hill offers a great panorama of the entire Istanbul - only then you will realise the sheer size and force of the 17 million city. Must do.

Went up with the funiculaire to the hilltop and enjoyed a coffee in the shadow of the trees in front of the pierreloti house with a terrific view over Istanbul. Just for an hour, but worth the experience.

Istanbul' peculiarity is this city was gifted a great number of really beautiful places! I'm always inspired with its beauty and mysteriousness. To visit Çamlıca was purposely included in our "to visit" list in order I've heard about this spot a lot. If to be honest, Istanbul is very huge and has several observation points. In spite of some remoteness... More

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.
