Alsancak, Izmir

(550+ reviews on the web)
Situated within the historical center of the city, Alsancak lures tourists with its restaurants, cafes, and shops. Known as "Punta" during the Ottoman times, this verdant neighborhood once housed mostly members of the upper-middle class. Today the lively quarter serves as the center of Izmir's tourist activity, featuring a network of streets filled with Ottoman-era houses converted into cozy bars. Visit the neighborhood's main square, a large open area dominated by a clock tower built in 1901 to commemorate the 25th anniversary of Sultan Abdul Hamid II's ascension to the throne. To experience the city's romantic atmosphere, stroll along the quarter's waterfront areas. Make Alsancak a centerpiece of your Izmir vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Izmir trip generator.
