Turkey’s Aegean Coast

Turkey’s Aegean Coast offers some wonderful sightseeing opportunities. There is Turkey’s third largest and most Cosmopolitan city, Izmir, with 4000 years of recorded history. Through the ages it has been an important trading city. Destroyed, it was rebuilt by Alexander the Great and today enjoys a cosmopolitan reputation amoungst Turkey’s cities. Izmir has a very relaxed atmosphere and is home to many fairs and festivals.

There are numerous pretty coastal towns and villages such as Çesme and FoÇa and Yeni FoÇa where you can relax with a cup of Çay (tea) and watch the fishing boats or the men mending their nets.

The biggest tourist attraction is the ancient city of Ephesus, built in the 10 century BC and home to famous remains of The Library of Celsus. Not far from Ephesus is Pamukkale, famous for its hot springs and nearby ruins.

Hire car is a great way to get around and we can arrange this for you. Public transport (bus services) are also very good in Turkey and we can put together an itinerary for you to see the sites with some lovely traditional hotels to stay in. Why not combine Istanbul or another region of Turkey with the Aegean Coast to make a great Turkish holiday experience?
