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.

The view is amazing. Family friendly place. It’s the best for some meditation or a special cup coffee with this unique view. The pictures had been taken around the sun shine in the morning. Highly recommended around the sunshine and sunset time. You will experience the view in day and night time.
This place has a beautiful view of Istanbul. You can have a little trouble getting up the hill. There are three cafes on the hill. They are all lovely there you can eat freeze on the verge of a very nice chat. A very pleasant place to stay when you go. Have a nice holiday.
