Tarihi Asansor, Izmir

#5 of 152 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 It has since been replaced by a modern elevator, but the structure remains the same.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. See Tarihi Asansor and all Izmir has to offer by arranging your trip with our Izmir trip planner.

  • I had some time to kill after visiting Kemeralti so I decided to check out Asansor. You can easily come here by walking from Kemeralti. It's around 15 minutes of walk. You can either take an elevator....  more »

  • Yesterday we visited the historical elevator of Izmir. It was a great social activity place. It’s worth experience to climb up in the elevator which was built in 1907 by a Jewish businessman for public use. When you climb up, you see a panoramic view of the Izmir city, the sea and the refreshing air. There is a classical Resturant where you can dine and enjoy the company of your family or friends. It’s a must see place in Izmir. A wonderful experience.
  • This place is my dream place. It is built on mountain once side & breathtaking sea coast the other side like you can view sea coat & enjoy sea breeze from window of your home as well. Since turkey is the safest place specially for the female I stayed there for three days. I discovered city all say then after ling days i used sit & enjoy a walk on sea cost. As i am nature loving person & was feeling like my soul was craving for this place since decades.
  • Spectacular scenery up the top of this historical lift which was initially built to help women and kids with the uphill climb of hilly Izmir. Maybe spend half a day there and enjoy the panoramic view of the sea and city of Izmir, grab a fresh natural orange juice from the cafe up there, use the fresh air and feel the breeze of the sea.
  • Nice place to see izmir city from top, it's better if u come here right before sunset so that u get to see night views too. It's a cool area to have coffee or tea. If u walk a bit passed it once u go up , u have a wider view of the tower and the city from behind
  • The place is peaceful. The scenery is spectacular. At the top there is a cafe and a restaurant. At the bottom the street which reaches the landmark, is full of cafes and bars. Must visit place. The Peace steps are close to this location. Don’t miss it.
