Pierre Loti Tepesi, Istanbul

4.2
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 location is super. Magnificent view of the Golden Horn Bay. But it's best to come around 9 am because there are a lot of tourists and local people later. with respect to the kitchen, nothing special. You can simply order tea and baklava. Once for a visit is enough.
  • It's a place to enjoy the panorama of Istanbul. One can visit both during the day or later in the evening. The belvedere is very neat and the place can be visited by car, foot or cable car. It's definitely a place to visit if you come to Istanbul as it isn't smothered by flocks of tourists (yet).
  • Beautiful view point and cafes were you can sit and enjoy the view. Most of the visitors are locals. Long waiting line for the cable cars to reach the top.
  • When you have a friend coming from abroad; Pierre Loti is the one of the best locations they have to see. It has a brilliant terrace that allows you to see old town. Also you are able to enjoy view by telescope. Best way to reach here to use Teleferic from Eyup Sultan. And after you finish your trip, my advise is walking downstairs just next to teleferic
  • Get the beef burger! Its epic! Apple an mint shisha is on point too!
