Not much to do or see in the park BUT the views of the city of Istanbul and the Bosporus are spectacular! Well worth the trip. We toured Beylerbeyi Palace and then drove up to Camlica. They have a cute cafe with nice lunch menu if you are there around noon. Park was green and lush, nice flower gardens and... More

Me and family enjoyed... More

Istanbul is best known as the crossroad between Asia and Europe. It's where 2 continents meet, separated by a Bosphorus River in between. From Camlica Hill, see the Bosphorus River separating the 2 continents. Quiet and peaceful garden with great lookout view point. Birdeye view of the city. Enjoyed. No admission fee.

Staying in Uskudar

Neighborhood Profile
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.
