If you are heavy smokers you'll need to try hard to get up there but if you finally manage it, then you'll be compensated! Breathtaking views to the port and the rest of the marina and the old city of Cesme. Just go.

An impressive castle with loads of history, great views over surrounding landscape and town. Exhibition of old coins and other old items inside the castle. Entrance 8 lirs for grown-ups, small kids go free. Turtles living on the grassy middle area walking between artefacts were great excitement for kids.

This is a main feature of the heart of Cesme, you can't miss it. One of our group went inside, the others went for a walk around the outside. Both required steep up hill slopes and stairs. Views are worth it either in or out- just a different perspective.

When visiting Cesme it is a must to see the Castle. Right at the harbor seaside it offers terrific views and insights into the Romain times.

Cesme Castle, overlooking the town and marina, is certainly worth a visit. Great views and renovation of a 500 year Ottoman gem. The two museums are well done and have interesting artifacts. To access the castle views and ramparts require lots of stairs and climbing.
