Cheap holidays to Izmir – Turkey’s ancient Aegean port city

History, culture and beaches combine on low cost holidays to Izmir

Better known by its original name of Smyrna, the Turkish city Izmir is in a beautiful, cultural area on the stunning blue Bay of Izmir. The ancient Aegean port and seafront promenade are the hub of social life with nearby sandy beaches at Foca, Dikili and Cesme. This area has a rich cosmopolitan heritage that has embraced Greeks, Armenians, Turks and Levantines over the past centuries. Visitors on short breaks to Izmir in the shoulder seasons will particularly appreciate the wonderful cuisine that this multicultural area has to offer.

Cheap holidays to Izmir offer bazaars, culture and history

Visitors enjoying short city breaks to Izmir will find the sprawling city is a wonderful metropolis for shopping and museums as part of any cultural experience. Since a fire in 1920 destroyed many of Izmir’s oldest buildings, the city is surprisingly modern. Similar to Istanbul, there are bargains galore in the vibrant bazaars which sell everything from tea and Turkish delight to handmade carpets and water pipes. The best place to see historic Ottoman-era homes is nearby Alsancak which has narrow streets lined with cafés serving authentic Turkish coffee, tea and the chance to try a waterpipe!

Must-do attractions on cheap Izmir holidays in Turkey

Ride the cable car up the nearby mountains for the best views of the bay as part of your unforgettable last-minute holiday to Izmir.
