It is a beautiful city on the southern part of Turkey. 300 days a year sunshine is guarenteed. Avoid July and August due to very hot and humid months. Rest of the year is very comfortable. Some tourist from northen Europe swims on the month of Dec-Jan-Feb. At the very same day you can do water ski or snow ski. City has a lot to offer shopping to historical sites. Hakan
Visit the hill with the windmills, try some food, walk along the marine, and visit the museum with nice amphora collection, well preserved rooms of the Crusaders, and great view to the port.
I'm going to be in Istanbul for one full day in April. What are the best destinations to see? We were thinking of taking a sea-bus to downtown. All suggestions welcome, this includes historical stops, local hang-outs and the best places to eat :)
If you plan to stay in the area at least 2-3 days and do a lot of sightseeing, get the MUZE card to save on the entries to the Goreme Open Air Museum, three underground cities, and several other cave villages/churches. In high season it will save you time too - you get to skip the line... It's cash only.
I am planning a trip to Turkey....What are the best cities you recommend me to visit and the interesting places and markets for shopping?
Izmir is very modern city close to very interesting tourist sites, You can never get bored in Izmir. You can travel to Ephesus, It s an antic Roman city excavated and designed as it was 2000 years ago. And you can visit Virgin Marry s house just at the top of the hill beside the Ephesus. Again very interesting place is Selcuk which is very cheap for accommodation, In izmir Kordon boyu Means pr emanate at the sea side where you can have refreshments or have a nice meal. I can finish saying...
