What's included

Duration: 3 Hours

Pierre Loti Hill, Pierre Loti Cafe, Cable Car, Small Bazaar, Eyup Mosque and Tomb

There are few cafes and tea houses on top of Pierre Loti hill, we need to use cable car to climb up. This hill was named as Pierre Loti for the honor of French poet Pierre Loti, who helped Ottomans quite a lot. It is, where he fell in love with a Turkish lady and wrote his poems, the best place to take some tea/coffee and watch magnificent landscape and view of Golden Horn from Eyup to Eminonu.

After free time on the hill we need to use cable car one more time. Passing by a small bazaar, second visit is Eyup mosque. Eyup is one most of the holiest districts of Istanbul. Here you can learn why this area is very important for Islam history and why thousands of people visit Eyup Mosque every day.
