Izmir is Turkey's third biggest city and second most important port. A city of palm-lined promenades, avenues and green parks set in all-encompassing curves along a circular bay. Izmir has an exceptionally serene climate. The city is a busy commercial and industrial center as well as the gateway to the Aegean Region. Turkey's Aegean shores are among the most extraordinary landscapes in the country. The superlative coastline, lapped by the clear water of the Aegean Sea, abounds in vast and faultless beaches surrounded by olive groves, rocky crags and pine woods. The third largest, and one of the most stunning provinces of Turkey is Izmir, extending on the shores of an eye-catching bay, filled with ships and yachts. Backed by mountains and facing the sea, this site offers a fine appearance. Lovely palm trees decorate the promenades and avenues, where new and inspiring buildings stand.

Things to Do

Izmir is one of the biggest tour ports in Turkey. Go site seeing and visit Konak Square and take a look at the breathtaking Clock Tower. Or get a history lesson at the Archelogical Museum. If that doesn't fill up tour day visit Kutur Park (Culture Park) and if your lucky the International Fair will be in town when you visit.

Enjoy a shopping trip around town.  There are a lot of nice inexpensive shops in Izmir. They also have very nice restaurants, bars and cafes. So take your time choose wisely and don't miss anything, see it all.
