Cheap flights to Izmir

Theme parks, archaeological sites and beaches to die for are just some of the tourist treats waiting in store for those who choose beautiful Izmir as their next holiday destination.  Known as the ‘Pearl of the Aegean’, Izmir is the perfect choice if you’re looking to combine a city break with that longer beachside holiday you’ve been after. While it might be Turkey’s third largest city, it still retains the holiday resort vibe of smaller towns along Turkey’s turquoise Aegean coast. A bay packed with palm-lined promenades, seafront restaurants and cafés as far as the eye can see make this city a popular holiday choice with tourists.

And with more than 5,000 years of history, you can expect to be bombarded with archaeological goodies at every turn, both inside the city and close by. Oh, and did we mention the beaches? Not many cities can boast sandy stretches and waters of this quality right on their doorstep, or the top quality beach resort of Kusadasi just down the road.
