Izmir Holidays

Overview

Izmir Area

The Izmir region is one of the best spots to see some of the most significant sites in Turkey.

Visit Ephesus, once the second largest city of the Roman Empire, and be captivated by this well preserved site. Move on to Virgin Mary's home, and see where Jesus Christ's mother lived, along with the site of the Temple of Artemis.

Visit Bergama with the Acropolis and the Asklepion of ancient Pergamum, the ports of Priene, and Miletus, and Didyma’s Temple of Apollo with its very wellknown oracles considered one of the most sacred places in the ancient world.

If more site seeing is in order, a visit to Pamukkale is a must-do! Pamukkale is one of the most intriguing places in Turkey with its cotton-castles and Hierapolis. Indulge yourself in the hot natural mineral springs Kusadasi is within the Izmir province, which is a place for delving into the historic fascinations of Turkey.

Some examples here include The Archaeological Museum, The Konak Clock Tower, Kizlaragasi market and Kadifekale, which is also known as the Velvet Castle and offers a magnificent view over the town that would have once been enjoyed by Alexandra the Great.

Kusadasi Holidays

Kusadasi is home to a large array of many restaurants and bars. It is also one of the most amazing places for souvenir shopping. Second to just Istanbul, it offers a very vast range of souvenir shops, and a shoppers paradise for jewellery, leather, gold, and traditional handicraft. Don’t forget your haggling hat, as you will need it!

Beaches in Kusadasi are long and sandy, but for added tranquillity visit Kusadasi National Park, where for a  small entry fee you will be spoilt with amazing crystal clear waters and an authentic setting perfect for relaxation. This is a nature reserve, and so you may also bump into wild Boar and other local wildlife. Neighbouring Ozdere is a beautiful town also defined by its silky white sands and dazzling waters, so makes a great retreat after a few hours of exploration.
