Why fly 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.

Best time to visit

Izmir is beautiful in spring, with mild temperatures, lower prices and sleepier beaches. Come in the height of summer, though, for the warmest days and a guaranteed suntan. June, July and August are especially lively, and the restaurants and bars are at their most atmospheric, plus street performers and markets are in full swing.

Avoid the crowds

Izmir is prime holiday territory from June to September, when the tourists flock to the sandy beaches, bars and restaurants and take advantage of the warm, sunny climate. Avoid these months if you like things quieter. April, May, September and October can also be really mild, but are much cheaper and the top sights are less crowded.

Your Izmir Questions Answered

You can either take a bus, train, or taxi. The Havas bus is a cheap option, with a ride taking you to the city centre in around 45 minutes. For a faster trip at a cheaper price, you can try a 30-minute ride on the Izban train. However, those travelling with a group, carrying a lot of luggage, or simply wanting the fastest and most convenient way to get to Izmir may want to take an airport taxi instead.
