Located on Turkey’s Aegean coast, and often referred to as the ‘Florence of the East’ thanks to its Italian-style architecture, Izmir is a city with a long and rich history which is reflected in the beautiful old buildings, diverse cuisine and melting pot of cultures. Kick off your Izmir holidays with a tour of the harbour, a bustling hub for trade and fishing, and a jumping off point for sightseeing boat trips. When you’re ready for some R&R, head to one of the nearby beaches where you can sunbathe, surf and maybe even join a volleyball game with some of the locals, then head to an authentic cafe bursting with character and friendly faces.
If you’ve got time to spare on your Izmir holidays, take a trip to the nearby towns of Çesme, Dikili, and Pamucak where you’ll find white sand beaches, thermal springs and thrilling diving sites.
