Çamlıca Hill

On the Asian shores of the Bosphorus there is high pine covered hill which has a restaurant situate at its apex. From here one can inhale the fresh Black Sea air, and obtain the best views of the sprawling metropolis of Istanbul. The best time for pictures is in the morning, but late afternoon offers glimpses on the city’s skyline silhouetted against the sunset while night fall ushers in an impressive portrait of Istanbul as a city of sparkling lights.
