Tarihi Asansor, Izmir

4.3
#5 of 101 in Things to do in Izmir
Reach the upper levels of the community for expansive views of the city, the bay, and the surrounding landscape with Tarihi Asansor. The original elevator was built in 1907 and transported people and goods to the upper quarters of the city, allowing them to bypass the steep cliffs. It has since been replaced by a modern elevator, but the structure remains the same. Take it up for some great photo opportunities, or sit down for a drink and a bite to eat at the outdoor restaurant located at the elevator's exit--one of the city's fanciest. There is no charge to visit this site. Bring a jacket, as it can get fairly breezy on top. For travelers who use our international travel planner, Izmir holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Tarihi Asansor and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • Nice place to have cay\coffee with a view of izmir.
  • Very nice view. Maybe the best in Izmir. Hot drinks are OK. Reasonable prices.
  • Really mediocre food with a great view. Ordered the cheese sandwich and breakfast plate and it was my least favorite in Turkey so far. The Turkish coffee was also average.
  • Very historical place with good view to izmir city

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. More expensive, upscale hotels sit a little bit east of the city core, right on the idyllic coast.
