The birthplace of Homer, the ancient port city of Izmir boasts a colorful heritage that includes traces of Greek, Armenian, and Jewish cultures.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Basilica of St. Jonh and La Tulip Art Gallery. Museum-lovers will get to explore Camlik Locomotive Museum and Ataturk Museum. Explore Izmir's surroundings by going to Urla (Urla Kum Plaji & Urla Winery) and Kaleici Camii (in Kusadasi). There's lots more to do: get engrossed in the history at Izmir Museum of History and Art, take in the spiritual surroundings of Hisar Mosque, buy something for everyone on your list at MaviBahce Shopping Center, and do a tasting at Usca Winery.
