Izmir

Pearl of the Aegean

The birthplace of Homer, the ancient port city of Izmir boasts a colorful heritage that includes traces of Greek, Armenian, and Jewish cultures. Founded nearly four millennia ago and long known by its Greek name Smyrna, this busy city has served as a major Mediterranean trading center since its earliest days. Today cosmopolitan Izmir remains one of the country's most liberal and worldly urban centers, renowned for its nightlife, culinary scene, and cultural festivals. Nestled against a large bay, the city features a network of broad boulevards flanked by contemporary buildings and upscale shopping malls, interspersed with historical mosques and churches, a blend of modern and traditional architecture. Izmir is in Izmir Province. Use our Turkey trip itinerary planning app to arrange your visit to Izmir and other destinations in Turkey.

Where to stay in Izmir

The seaside town of İzmir caters to a range of budgets in terms of accommodations. You'll find most options concentrated within a few blocks, conveniently close to the waterfront, shops, restaurants, and nightclubs. These include moderately priced three- and four-star hotels and a number of budget-friendly hostels, as well as some guesthouses a little bit north and south of the downtown core.
