  • Lovely place with people enjoying summers to their fullest! Place is friendly for kids and not to forget the traditional street food that's up for sampling! It's best for the late afternoon or evening to enjoy the sun, watch the sunset, and wait for the mood lighting to turn on.
  • Trade mark of Izmir. Locatin in Kemeralti where is good place to find lot of goods, souvenirs , food and historical monuments. Place to be visited for sure.
