As one of the oldest settlements in the Mediterranean sea region, İzmir contains numerous important archaeological sites and an Old Town with winding, narrow streets and ancient markets. Use our map as a guideline, not a specific route.
Get up early, before the markets and crowds, and do your own little ‘runseeing’ tour of İzmir old town and historical sites. Start at Cankaya or Basmane Gar subway station, and run the roads around the Smyrna Antik Kenti, sort of an open air museum. Then enjoy a random jaunt through the narrow streets of Old Town, which lies between the Cankaya and Konak subway stations.
