Tour description provided by Viator

When your cruise arrives in port, discover the magic of Izmir on an introductory half-day tour that covers all the top sights. Wander through the ancient Agora, visit the Archaeological Museum and the iconic clock tower at the Konack Square, and enjoy a pleasant walk along the waterfront.

Perfect for first-time visitors, this Izmir sightseeing shore excursion starts with the wonders of the ancient Agora, one of the best-preserved agoras in the world. It was once a bustling Roman bazaar, and today you can still see colonnades of Corinthian columns, vaulted chambers and a reconstructed arch.

Then head to the Archaeology Museum, where you’ll see Greek and Roman artifacts and the head of a gigantic statue of Domitian that once stood at Ephesus. Continue to the clock tower located at the Konak Square, a symbol of Izmir. Decorated in Ottoman architecture, the tower features four fountains around the base in a circular pattern.

Finally, wander around the Alsancak district and Pasaport Quai, a historic and beautiful area on the waterfront.
