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

If you search a place that it has beautiful Park and perfect scenes, you must go to there. Also, it is a cool place. The transportation is very simple. You can come to USKUDAR by Boat and Marmaray easily. It doesn't take more than 30 minutes for passing from European Side to Asian Side. Then you should get on bus... More

Lovely place. There is only one Cafe there and you can get a lot of snack options. Its a little pricey but affordable. The city looks beautiful from this point.

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

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
