Kusadasi

Unreservedly dedicated to tourism, Kusadasi sits on the Aegean coastline and acts as a gateway to the ancient city of Ephesus, one of the country's major Greco-Roman archaeological sites. Nearly half a million people vacation here at the height of tourist season, most of them sun-starved visitors from northern Europe's colder countries. The hills surrounding the city teem with big hotels and luxury resorts, but Kusadasi itself remains a manageable city, easily explored on foot. The walkable town center features the remains of the old city walls and a 17th-century mosque built on the orders of the legendary Mehmed Pasha. Kusadasi also makes a good base for trips to the nearby Greek island of Samos.

Where to stay in Kusadasi

The former fishing town of Kuşadası today harbors cruise ships, and the coastal area teems with discount accommodations, budget- and family-friendly three-star hotels, and hostels. Mass tourism reigns here; you'll find similar mid-rise hotels in the town center. A little north of the yacht marina, you'll find a handful of slightly more upscale four-star hotels and resorts that offer relief from the shopping whirlwind. All accommodations are relatively close to the sights and retail therapy.
