We meet at Antalya International Airport at 08:30 am and take the flight to Istanbul at 10:00 via Pegasus Airlines. As soon as we arrive at Istanbul Airport, we catch up with our guide and visit Pierre Loti Hill first. The hill was named after French author and orientalist Julien Viaud who lived in Istanbul in 1876 and visited the coffee house often on the hill. We take the cablecar (extra) to get Pierre Loti hill and have a coffee break up on the hill.
