The clock tower is the symbol of Izmir, at least when it comes to tourism and souvernirs. You will find it in Konak square, in the heart of the city. The tower may not be the most glorious attraction of the area, but still it is a "must see", and as anyone visiting Izmir is most likely to pass by... More

This rather splendid city was spoiled for us by the persistent scam perpetrated by Kurdish shoe-cleaners in the beach area. Every persuasive trick was tried; including 'do it for free'.

It is a monument, very nice to take photos, during the day and also during the night, when warm colours enlighten it. It is besides a cute small mosque and some (not cute) government buildings.

One the major landmarks of Izmir which we visited on our way to the airport after a week in Selcuk/Kusadasi. A nice place, also nice to visit the tiny but beautiful Mosque right next to the clocktower.

To be honest if you visit Izmir, there is no way that you will leave town without seeing it either if you are with a tour or if you are solo. There is not much to see actually. Shortly, it is built by Raymond Charles Pére in 1901 as a present from German emperor Wilhelm 2. It is said that... More

The clock tower is of local historical interest and is in the middle (more or less) of a square that is surrounded by shops selling lovely Turkish sweets...the whole area is quite pleasant though busy...
