“Interesting object”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

Tower is not very tall and big. It is very nice, easy to watch it completely at a glance.
Decoration seems like lace of stone.

“Actually part of Konak Square”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

Located in a large plaze at the foot of the Konak Ferry terminal. Good place to watch people and enter the bazaar area. Clock is very photogenic!

“Best thing to see in town”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013

This ended up being the only major thing we saw in town. But there's not much to see in Izmir anyway. It was a nice place to sit and eat and relax.

“It is just a clock tower.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2012

Don't be overly romantic about this as it's just a clock tower in a new town square. Most people use it as a reference point to meet and get directions.

“The landmark”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

The Saat Kulesi (Clock Tower) is probably the most important turist landmark of Izmir. You will find it in every souvenir you will see.

This very interesting Clock Tower is in the middle of the Konak Square, near a small mosque named Konak Camii.

The tower is also near the very nice waterfront and a couple of blocks from the Kemeralti Market, an old bazaar that was established some centuries ago.

Full of pigeons, it is an excellent place for nice photos.
