Izmir Holidays

Izmir holidays provide you with a strange combination of the ancient and the modern – the traditional and the cosmopolitan. Renowned as the ‘Pearl of the Aegean’, Izmir lies along the Gulf of Izmir in southwest Turkey.

Izmir is a gateway to the beautiful Aegean Coast of Turkey and is one of the most popular holiday destinations for tourists from all over the world. In fact, Izmir is the second busiest port and the third largest city in Turkey. The city of Izmir has a deep-rooted historical background that dates back to the third century BC. Today Izmir is a fantastic tourist destination with friendly people, a plethora of accommodation, shopping facilities and nightlife. Izmir has close access to some of the best beaches in the country.

A lot of people visiting the Aegean Coast of Turkey take day trips to Izmir for retail therapy. The buzzing city life is another dimension of Izmir that holidaymakers cherish. The old district of Izmir is the hub of vibrant bazaars where you can get anything from high street fashion to dried figs. In fact, the latter is a speciality of this region of Turkey. So do grab a handful of figs here.

Izmir holidays not only provide one with the chance to be close to nature, they also offer some of the most lively markets and nightclubs in Turkey – suitable for sun lovers and party animals alike.
