1. Re: Places to go in Izmir

It is a pleasant walk along the Kordon, lined with bars and restaurants and running for about 3.5 kms from the dock area to Konak Square and İzmir's famous clock tower. There are excellent shopping opportunities in the Alsancak area behind and running parallel to the Kordon

The bazaar beginning behind Konak Square, though a distinct second to İstanbul, is still large enough to cover several city districts, including Kemeraltı as the bazaar is often called . The Archaeological Museum is well worth a visit, too, as is the Agora (dating back to the early 2nd Century BC) located at the top end of the bazaar. Follow the signs!

Rising above the Agora is Kadifekale (Velvet Castle) for stunning views across İzmir’s bay and city.

For accommodation options it depends on your budget. A good area for budget hotels is to the north of Fevzipaṣa Bulvarı in the area knoiwn at Çankaya (in front of Basmane Train Station. Many other options are available of course and reviews here on on tripadvisor would be a good place to start your search.

However, if you require any more detailed information, please let me know.
