Archaeological museum

The collection displayed dates to the time of the Greek and Roman rule. The extensive collection of sculptures, including a frieze of Poseidon and Demeter from the 2nd century AD, is not to be missed.
Address: Arkeoloji Muzesi, near Konak Square

Ethnographic museum

You can find all kinds of information here on the specific traditions and customs of the region. Curious as to the story behind the Camel Wrestling Festival? Or how a kilim (Turkish carpet) is made? Or what life was like under the Ottoman administration? If that is the case, the museum is well worth visiting.
Address: Efnografya Muzesi, right opposite the Archaeological Museum.

The Bell Tower (Saat Kulesi)

No visit to Izmir is complete without a photo of this famous orientation point, donated to the city in 1901 by Sultan Abdul Hamit II. Izmir’s Eiffel Tower!!
Address: Konak Square


Izmir’s own castle, built by Alexander the Great, offers a fantastic view over the city and bay. The best time is at sundown, when the call to prayer resounds through the city.
Address: Rakim Elkutlu Caddesi
