There isn't much to say about the Clock Tower, I mean, It's old and nice and it's THE place to take a picture and tag "Izmir" on social networks. It's situated in Konak which has a nice view of the Izmir bay and nice backstreets for cheap shopping. You can also find Bazars close by if you want souvenirs!

This isn't the most exciting thing you are ever going to see but it is worth seeing as part of getting to know Izmir. To be viewed on the way to the market or harbour.

Located in a lovely square, only minutes away from the market and a short walk away from the beach. Well worth having your photo taken standing besides it.

Simple and significant, the Saat Kulesi clock tower is another typical site to see in Izmir. It's very hot in that area, so bring water along.

this is the cityscape you just can't miss if you are visiting Izmir, located in the city center, beside seaside and not far from most known international Hotels. Or just a quick visit or a with more time to visit the market just a few meters away, definitely worth a visit to take a picture with the Clock tower behind.

This is 'the' landmark in Izmir. Set in Konak Square, it's the perfect meeting place for friends. Besides feeding the pigeons or people watching, one can head off in any direction from there - to Konak ferry terminal, to Kemeralti Market, to the Kordon and Alsancak or to the theaters. It's especially pretty at night when it's lit up.

In a city where there is little to see in terms of monuments or old quarters this tower makes the difference in terms of architecture. Located in a lively square close to the sea it's well worth the visit.
