About İzmir

Izmir's legendary beauty is a subject of poems and anthems with flowers blooming in its mountains (as it is said in the İzmir March, a symbol of freedom), and its spirit is slightly different than that of other cities. İzmir is a city that values its personality as much as it embraces all of modern life's reflections and enjoys self-indulgence. Its "Simit" (bagel) is crispy, its "Kumru" is warm, its cuisine is rich. It is a peaceful city with a vibrant history, a tranquil urban life and inviting coastal settlements. For more, take a look at our Izmir travel guide, "Two days in Izmir", which contains many details about Izmir, and buy an Izmir flight ticket.
