Izmir Holidays

The pretty port city of Izmir boasts a bustling boardwalk, lively market, and dazzling historic sites. Sparkling seas and crumbling ruins make Izmir holidays unforgettable.


Things to Do in Izmir 

  • Go for an evening stroll along Kordon, Izmir’s waterfront. Think a pretty cobblestone promenade lined with palm trees, bars, restaurants and cafes.
  • Spend a day or two on Izmir’s sun-soaked sands. Ilica, Alacati, and Cesme are all gorgeous pale gold beaches at only an hour’s drive from Izmir city centre.
  • Shop ‘til you drop at the Kemeralt? Market. Like the Grand Bazaar, Kemeralti Market is lined with stalls selling everything, as well as some cosy cafes. Our favourite kebab-stop is Antik Café – it’s so cheap.
  • Take a trip to the ancient Greek city of Ephesus. Built over 3000 years ago, Ephesus was once home to the Temple of Artemis, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World.


Best Time to Visit 

May or Oct: If you’re hoping to see the sunshine but also avoid the crowds, either of these months would be the best time to visit Izmir. Izmir weather experiences hot summers and mild, but rainy winters.

June to September boasts average temperatures of about 25°C and is an ideal time for visiting the area’s beaches. November to March is far cooler at around 10°C with some rainfall.

Fans of jazz music should check out the Izmir European Jazz Festival. Taking place in the first half of March each year, this music festival features both local and international acts.
