The birthplace of Homer, the ancient port city of Izmir boasts a colorful heritage that includes traces of Greek, Armenian, and Jewish cultures.
On the 30th (Sat), look for gifts at Has Deri Leather Shop, don't miss a visit to Saat Kulesi (Clock Tower), then don't miss a visit to Tarihi Asansor, and finally take a leisurely stroll along Kordonboyu. Keep things going the next day: visit Alsancak, walk around Izmir Wild Life Park, and then learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Izmir Dogal Yasam Parki.

To see photos, other places to visit, and tourist information, go to the Izmir tour itinerary planning tool.

Balikesir to Izmir is an approximately 2.5- hour car ride. Prepare for little chillier weather when traveling from Balikesir in May: high temperatures in Izmir hover around 19°C and lows are around 7°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 31st (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
