For an amazing bird's eye view over Istanbul, search out the Galata Tower. For around 6TL you can head up to the top and wander around the top of the tower, admiring the view and picking out various sites for as long as you like. There is also a restaurant/cafe on the floor below where you can have a bite to eat or something to drink while enjoying the view. On sunny days it can be super busy, so either head there early, or on a cloudy day, when it's much less busy.
