Tour description provided by Viator

Discover the magic of Izmir on an introductory half-day tour that covers all the highlights. Wander through the ancient Agora, marvel at the ruins of Alexander the Great's castle and visit both the Archaeological and Ethnographic museums.

Highlights include:

Ancient Agora

Izmir's Ancient Agora was once a bustling Roman bazaar and today you can still see Colonnades of Corinthian columns, vaulted chambers and a reconstructed arch making it one of the best preserved Agoras in the world.

Kadifekale

The ruins of Alexander the Great's Castle, Kadifekale (meaning "the velvet castle" in Turkish), sits atop a hill overlooking the city below.

Archaeological Musuem

Visit the Archaeology Museum containing many Greek and Roman artifacts. Be sure to take a look at the head of a gigantic statue of Domitian that once stood at Ephesus.
