Camlica Hill On the Asian shores of the Bosphorus there lies a high pine covered bill, atop which sits a restaurant. From here one can inhale the fresh Black Sea air, and possibly obtain the best views of the sprawling metropolis of Istanbul. The best time for pictures with clarity is in the morning, but late afternoon offers glimpses on the city's skyline silhouetted against the setting sun while night fall ushers in an impressive portrait of Istanbul as a city of twinkling lights.
Beylerbeyi Palace Situated along the banks of the Asian side of the Bosphorus in the district of Beylerbeyi, this palace complex consists of the main palace building plus five pavilions (Kösk). The architect Sarkis Balyan, the brother ol ilit architects responsible for the Dolmabahce Palace, built this modern palace for Sultan Abdulaziz in 1861-65. Similar in style to the Dolmabahce Palace, this sumptuously furnished residence built of white marble served mainly as a summer house and lodging for visiting royalty from abroad.
