Konak Square, with it's distinctive clock tower and mini-mosque, is a central meeting point for Izmir's locals. We did find a bakery across the square to try out some local snacks, and a great place to buy the best Turkish delight i have ever tasted.

The heart of the city--get a sense of the pace and people of izmir. This is a good meeting spot or people watching post.

How different Izmir is from Istanbul! It is far more secular and people really use their streets for marketing their wares, dining, playing, street art, and just... More

a big square in the centre of Izmir with a lot of things to see and shops. On Sundays there's a pazar (an open market), but be careful of the pickpockets. Go to Bella Pizza restaurant for great pide and iskander if you get hungry.
