Things to do in Izmir
It would not be exaggerating to note that İzmir’s most beautiful beaches are in Alaçatı – namely, Ilıca Beach, Delikli Bay, Çark Beach, Cleopatra Bay and Piyade Bay Beach.
Turkey’s third largest city is not only known for its ancient roots but also the many facets of its contemporary culture, all of which have made it one of the most important cities in the Aegean.
Today, Izmir is best known as the most Western-oriented Turkish city. A large part of the population is Muslim and mosques are found everywhere, but when you walk around the city centre, it is not necessarily obvious.
Best time to visit Izmir
May to August is the best time to visit Izmir. The place has got a Mediterranean climatic condition most of the year. During the peak season, the weather is warm and great to roam around the places. October is warm in Izmir and not hot, with cooler evenings.
