spot_img

Pierre Loti Hill is a great leisure and tourist area with an open air cafe overlooking the Golden Horn with beautiful views. The hill is about 55 meters from sea level. Taking its name from a famous French novelist and traveler, who lived in Istanbul and spent his most of the time here, the hill is accessible by a nice cable car trip.

What to Expect?

The hill is a popular spot for taking great photos with the best views of Istanbul. You’ll find seven historic mansions that are now serving as a boutique hotel, a lovely restaurant, a hookah cafe, and the very famous Pierre Loti Hill Cafe and shop where you can enjoy the beautiful views of the Golden Horn. And there is a big graveyard on the slopes of the hill.

You can have a good rest there while drinking your Turkish coffee or tea, or enjoy the restaurants at its open air Pierre Loti Cafe.
