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

Camlica is a hill on the eastern (asian) side of Istanbul. It offers cool, shady and pine scented sanctuary from Istanbul's hustle and bustle. The name comes from the pine trees. Apart from the peace & serenity, the hilltop offers magnificent sweeping views of Istanbul on both shores and of the Bosphorus. There are many lovely floral beds (tulips are... More

I have say I was a bit surprised with how lovely this spot was. It gives great views of the European side of Istanbul, the Bosphorus and down into the Asian side of the city. It is also a popular spot to have a picnic in the morning/afternoon and my guide asked some locals if I could try some of... More

You'll get a nice view over the city from here. A taxi is to prefer since the bus stop is all the way down the hill. Ok service

The best view of the sparkling blue Bosphorus dividing the Asian and the European sides! Plenty of professional photographers can be spotted everywhere aiming their cameras at the glorious scenery. Its heartening to also see a lot of married couples in their wedding attire in tow with their bridesmaids and relatives capturing forever the beauty of their special day against... More
