Why locals love it

Named after the well-known French novelist Pierre Loti, this hill offers perfect views of the Golden Horn. It’s also home to a famous café that bears the same name. Loti lived in Istanbul for many years and was a big fan of the city. The café is a meeting point for lovers and couples, and has featured in many Turkish romance films.

Why you should visit it

Besides the café, Pierre Loti Hill has several restaurants, a cemetery and many historical buildings. You can either walk up the hill or take a cable car.
