It's the symbolic figure of Izmir. If you are around or planing to visit Kemeralti Market, it is worth stopping by and see it. Otherwise, not so special.

This is worth a visit if you have the time. Good for photos of local people relaxing and resting. Go early in the morning when it is cooler. Take a photo of the tower with the two palms framing it.

On Saturday evening we were walking along the sea and saw so many Turkish families doing the same. The area of the Clock tower is very much worth a visit. Not for the tower, but for the people!

Rome has the colosseum, Paris has the Eiffel Tower, Izmir has the clock tower. If you are into seeing those main sites, definitely go see it. It is close the ferry station and metro stop and there are some shops and walking areas nearby. However, there isn't really that much to do here other than see the clock tower and... More

Although it's the symbol of the city, it's surprisingly small, but very beautiful. The surroundings of it, makes it great to walk through.

It was a nice clock tower, but thats all it was. The area around was nothing special. But ifyou are a big fan of feeding birds this is the place to go. Also the kemeralti bazar is nearby.

I don't know what it's like in the day time but at sunset it was wonderful. A lovely atmosphere in the square as the lights came on. So kitch, great fun, and a lovely square between the old town and the sea.

Looks really cool, especially in the nights, when it is translucent. The Konak square around is nice as well.
