It has some awesome views from the top of the hill, avoid going on peak hours. If you have Istanbul metro card it will work here as well. Another site nearby is the tomb of Hazrat Aby-Ayub Ansari, the area is known as Eyup.

For much of Istanbul’s history, Sisli and the area
just north of Taksim Square were open countryside used
mostly as hunting grounds. These days, Sisli and its
chic streets are considered the very heart of

create an expressly “downtown” feel. Though largely a
residential neighborhood, luxury hotels, fine dining
