Izmir is the 3rd largest city in Turkey with the second largest seaport. It has been inhabited since 3000 AD so the area is rich in historical sites. Izmir hosts the cultural international fair in Alsancak every year. The historical site of Ephesus is only 30-35  minutes from the city centre.
A visit to Izmir can not be complete without spending a few hours in the market area of Kemeralti Bazaar in Konak. It is a historic and liveliest part of Izmir with old streets full of shops, work shops, allies, Mosques, places to eat and relax. Kizlaragasi is the place to purchase lovely gifts and beautiful silver jewelery.
Also you get to taste the best Turkish coffee, brewed in its cup on a cole fire in kizlaragasi Hani, prepared in a special way is the great way to sit, relax and let the world go bye.
