Welcome to Izmir!
The ancient city of Izmir on Turkey's Aegean coastline is a study in contrasts, with its bustling bazaars, modern high-rises, and an ever-changing melting pot of cultures. Once known as Smyrna and part of the Greek, Roman and Ottoman empires, the birthplace of Homer houses an array of archaeological ruins alongside a thriving nightlife and beach club scene.
