Local Guide

Behind the palm-lined promenades and avenues that follow the shoreline, the city gently ascends the slopes of the surrounding mountains. A cosmopolitan and lively city all year round, it is known throughout Turkey as ‘Beautiful Izmir’ and “The Pearl of the Aegean”. Izmir has hosted many civilisations throughout history and is now Turkey’s third most populous city – a centre of tourism, industry and trade mostly known for its international port. Being one of the oldest settlements on the Mediterranean with more than 5000 years of history, Izmir is an enlightened and energetic city with its lively Kordon, phaetons and warm inhabitants.
