This cable car offers great views of the Golden Horn and the Eyüp district. Although the ride lasts less than 3 minutes, it's worth taking!

There is a village at the top and a café. But this is not why to take the cable car. The views as you pass over a centuries-old cemetery and the vista from viewpoints at the top are the reasons to go.

My wife and I went here and rode the cable cars thinking it was an attraction. We were quite wrong. It's really just a form of public transit to move people from one place to another. You really can't see anything special which was a...More

Nothing much except a good view of the bay. Not worth the time to queue half hour to one hour to do a 1.5 min ride

Hard to find by public transportation. View on the Bosporus and Istanbul is OK, but not spectacular. Do not expect any alcohol in that region, so Turkish tea or soft drinks are served in restaurant.

If you want to go to Eyub from Pierre Loti Hil or to Pierre Loti Hill from Eyub Ansari Mosque then the best way is through the cable car. It's a short ride with great views of the Golden Horn.

For much of Istanbul’s history, Sisli and the area
just north of Taksim Square were open countryside used
mostly as hunting grounds. These days, Sisli and its
chic streets are considered the very heart of
contemporary Istanbuli life, where an epicenter of
fashion and a thriving business district meet to
create an expressly “downtown” feel. Though largely a
residential neighborhood, luxury hotels, fine dining
