From the moment you go to Izmir, you start to feel like I'm in another land. Even though it's a big city, there are times when you can stay away from the hustle and bustle of the city. The history of Izmir dates back to the 1st century BC. Founded by Greek colonists. Founded by Greek colonists, the city was home to philosophers such as Heredotus and Aristotle. It was one of the most important trade centers of the Ottoman Empire in 1600 years. It is among the world famous trade centers in the 18th and 19th centuries.

The city is famous for its historical sites and its proximity to the resorts helps you to live in the summer. The heart of the city beats in Alsancak, Konak, Karsiyaka and Kordon.

Besides the Byzantine aqueducts of Selcuk, the aqueducts of Foca and the aqueducts of Kızılçullu are worth seeing.

While each structure of the city is evidence of a tremendous history, there are several structures that stand out. The first of these is the Temple Of Artemis.
