The place is beautiful. The view was amazing. For me it felt like a place suitable for people who live in the city and wanted to do something out of the city.

This spot provides a breathtaking view of both east and west. There is a nice cafeteria at the top. HOWEVER, if you are here make sure you visit Camilica Camii (the big Mosque) as well.

You can see everything. Both bridges across the Bosporus and many buildings. Go there in the evening to see Istanbul at night. Nice!

Camlica Hill is a bit out of the way in Istanbul. You'll travel about 30 minutes from the Old City to arrive here. Lots of crowds, but worth the views if you are in the area. On nice days, many people bring blankets and picnic...More

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.

its myriad treasures than by its many thousand
