Izmir is home to a major international airport (Adnan Menderes Airport) which is gateway to the renowned international resort of Kusadasi as well as some smaller lesser known beachside resorts such as Cesme. Izmir, the city, is the largest port in Turkey and the third largest city in Turkey.
Although much of the city was destroyed by fire in 1922, it remains possible to find old dwellings and mosques and churches among the narrow cobbled streets. A cable railway runs from the city to the mountains affording stunning views over the city and the Aegean. In the area, there are long stretches of golden beaches lapped by warm blue sea interspersed by fishing villages clustered around small harbours. There are places where life seems to have changed little over the decades.
Shopping here is a fascinating experience, and you can buy anything from antiques and dried figs (for which Izmir is famous), to fine jewellery, hand-made shoes and a variety of clothing.
