this is in the asian part of Istanbul. it has an excellent vantage to view the european side. worth the visit. though its not easily accessible from the city center. we were with a small group and i think it was a cheaper way to get there.

It was a place that removes you from city's buildings and day-to-day busy life; you remember there is a blue sky an green park to enjoy.

Visited as part of a local tour. Large crowds as it was a Sunday afternoon. Wonderful views over Istanbul and also some nice restaurants and gift shops.

This is your best bet to see İstanbul from a premium viewpoint, especially if the weather treats you well. The Bosphorus, bridges, Sultanahmet, Hagia Sophia are all very visible from Camlica. There is a very old tree here aswell. It's beautiful. Do grab some tea/coffee or whatever fancies you from the cafe and enjoy your time.

...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
