  • Great and beautiful place that you can see history and have a good view from the ity from there...
  • The best castle museum have seen in Turkey. Filled with artifacts and history. Exibits are presented dozen of the castle rooms, to preserve them well, there are humidity collectors in every room (Cesme has high humidity). Highly recommend this place if you are history lover.
  • We only got to see a small section of it. What we saw was cool, but it wasn't much... 😥
  • Simple castle which is fully renovated.
  • Nice to walk around.. Nice spot.. Good view from the top

Where to stay in Cesme

At the hub of Çeşme sits the Old Town and large marina, where you'll find everything from car rentals, travel agencies, restaurants, and cafes. Here you'll trade the convenience and commotion of the city for beach access. A number of reasonably priced independent hotels surround the marina, while a handful of three- and four-star hotels on the peninsula of Dalyan put you in proximity to seafood restaurants and pristine swimming. To get to and from the Old Town, you'll have to rely on the services of your concierge. The neighboring town of Ilıca to the east offers a long stretch of sandy beaches, dotted by luxurious four-star hotels and resorts for those looking to indulge, including a couple of international chains. South of Ilıca the newer development of Alaçati Bay is slightly more expensive in its accommodations than the Old Town, but it's a windsurfer's paradise. The Old Town, Ilıca, and Alaçati Bay all have a handful of guesthouses for the budget-conscious; Dalyan is home to the one hostel in the area.
