symbol of izmir

no visit to the city would be complete without a visit to the clock tower. you can walk down the waterfront to get there, and then get lost in kemeralti bazaar behind it for hours.

You will not see something magnificent but this ancient clock is the most known ancient building in Izmir. Take some pictures and have a walk by the sea.

This one is a very nice place to see the typical clock tower in Izmir, is very close to a little mosque so you can walk through the coast line, arrive to this square, see the clock and the mosque and back to the hotel during the sunset, this place is the most famous place there so you must have...

It is really nice one of the symbol of Izmir ! But people around this tower is not mostly nice ! They will try to sell you something or they will try to push you to buy roses and stuff ! Be aware of them and say no !

Everyone I met on my travels in Turkey told me that if I ever visited Izmir I should see the " famous Clock Tower ". To hear them describe it, it was the next closest thing to Italy's Leaning Tower of Pizza or London's Big Ben. So anyway, got a chance to visit Izmir with the wife last weekend, and... More

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.
