Izmir unfortunately do not have that many heritage sites so it is very nice to see a bit of history preserved. The clock tower seat quietly in a lovely square overlooking the sea: the beautiful details of the tower and the beautiful marble "basins" on the side are just a pleasure to see.

Saat Kulesi is a beautiful monument and a must see, however, the area around it is more than wonderful. You need at least 4-5 hours to get a full feeling of that place. Don't miss having coffee at Kizlar Agasi. It is an experience you will never forget, especially if there are street performers playing authentic Turkish music. Also, you... More

The clock tower is in a square opposites the sea front of Izmir harbour. Lovely walk along the main street where there are plenty of restaurants and coffee/tea shops. Shisha cafes are very popular around there too.

A peaceful and relaxing square where the symbol of Izmir is. It has a small old mosque at one side and a nice water fountain at the other. You can feed pigeons simit ( the circular bread with sesame on top). Nice coffee shops just opposite the square.
