Why you should visit Izmir

Izmir is a great spot for those looking to catch some summer sun, with temperatures rising to 38°C in July. Relax and take in one of Izmir’s beautiful beaches – from shallow seas perfect for water sports to secluded, serene spots.

Izmir is a culinary delight for those looking to experience Turkish cuisine. The flavoursome food options are influenced by Arabic, Mediterranean, North African and Middle Eastern cultures with a meze of flatbreads, delectable meats and spiced vegetables - all perfect for sharing. If you are missing the comforts of home, there are plenty of local restaurants serving European cooking overlooking the port.

A perfect location for sun-seekers, with endless white sandy beaches, Izmir is the ideal destination for soaking up the dazzling Turkish sun. Long Beach, located in Kusadasi, is a must-see for those wanting to try their hand at water sports. And if that wasn’t enough, Ladies Beach is also nearby – another kilometre stretch of glorious sand with endless activities to excite any keen adventurer.

The port of Izmir is the vibrant heart and soul of the city, which still reflects the traditional aspects of local life. The lively port, which is steeped in history, is now a cultural hub of cafés, bars and restaurants.

For those looking to experience Turkish culture, the major historical sites are the best place to start. Visit Ephesus, one of the greatest preserved Roman settlements that is still standing today. Or embrace the natural charm at Dilek National Park, a protected land filled with enchanting coves, lush forests, stunning panoramas, and mountainous walks. And if you’re lucky you may even spot a wild boar!

What languages are spoken in Izmir?

No need to worry about language, English is widely spoken among the tourist areas. Izmir’s national language is Turkish, but the cultural hub has meant locals are able to speak a range of languages. If you’re looking for a place that offers culture, great food, exciting experiences and fantastic views, then Izmir has it all. This bustling historical hub is the third largest metropolitan city in Turkey - a place rich with culture and jaw-dropping natural beauty.
