Ruins · Beaches · Landmarks
─░zmir Province represents a land where undulating mountains fading into the indigo sky serve as a backdrop to lush green vineyards. Its abudance of ancient ruins and location on the Aegean coast make this Mediterranean province a prime holiday destination. The province boasts a fascinating history, having been ceded to the Greeks following World War I, only to be later reclaimed in the Turkish War of Independence. The coastal towns, ancient cities, warm climate, and superb local fish and herb cuisine are among the delights of this vacation spot.
