Pierre Loti hill gets its name from a French writer and it allows you to watch perfect view of Golden Horn in sunset .You can either reach Pierre Loti hill via cable car or a short walk in the path . No matter which way you prefer,at the end the result which you are going to witness is going to worth it.When I first went there maybe because its name comes from an writer, this poem came to my mind “Sana dün bir tepeden baktım aziz Istanbul” from Yahya Kemal. The translation is “ I looked at you from a hill dear Istanbul”…

People can find so many various things to do in Karakoy for all day time long.
