Izmir, Turkey Cruise Port

Izmir is a metropolitan city in the Western part of Anatolia in Turkey. The city is classified as being the country's third most populous city, after Istanbul and Turkey. Locals regard it to be the most Westernized city in the country. Izmir's metropolitan area lies on the waters of the Gulf of Izmir and stretches Northerly inland across the Gediz River delta, towards the East along an alluvial plain, and extends to the South where it has a more rugged terrain. Izmir covers an approximate area of 7,340 square kilometers and holds a population of about 2,847,691 people according to data gathered in 2014. Listed below are some of the recommended experiences and activities that visitors can expect to enjoy after cruising to Izmir, Turkey:
  • Visitors who are interested in learning about the region's artistic heritage should pay a visit to the Izmir Museum of History and Art because the museum has three departments; sculptures, ceramics, and precious artifacts. One of the main exhibits, is the seated Aphrodite from the Roman period.
  • A visit to Kordon is highly recommended. The iconic boardwalk is the product of the city's urbanization and it is adorned with a wide selection of bars and restaurants. The highlight of the Kordon, however, is the sunset view.
  • History buffs and fans of architecture should pay a visit to the ancient bazaar of Agora because it was built for Alexander the Great but got ruined by an earthquake in 178 AD. However, it was rebuilt soon after, and the arches and vaulted chambers are a delightful sight.
  • The city's center between Alsanack and Basmane is the site of an ideal recreational park, the Kulturpark. Visitors should tour the park's attractions that include a 50m parachute tower, a Ferris wheel, and some contemporary statues to the West of the park's pond.
