Pierre Loti Tepesi, Istanbul

4.1
Take a break from busy sightseeing with a visit to Pierre Loti Tepesi, the place where the locals go to relax and soak in a magnificent view of the city. The hill overlooking the Golden Horn is named after a French novelist and naval officer, the author of the semi-autobiographical novel "Aziyade" in which he described the city. On the hilltop, in addition to the scenic views and peaceful surroundings for walking, you can also find a good selection of coffeehouses and restaurants, many of which offer the authentic atmosphere of old Istanbul. If you're not driving, use the cable car to reach the viewpoint; it operates from the foot of the hill. Before you visit Istanbul, use our trip planner to discover what you can do and see there.

  • Beautiful view of the Golden Horn! The ideal place to visit on a warm sunny day. To enhance your experience at this spot, you must visit it at sunrise. The sun rises up from the seaside and the scenery it creates is utterly gorgeous.
  • Great view from front terrace. You can see at least half of Istanbul. Downhill road which separate graveyard on left and right side of the hill is interesting and decorated with quote plates. Black tea in restaurant is very delicious but very poor menu options.
