Cesme, tour to Izmir

Land tour code: CES-03
Cruise port: Turkey - Cesme

Duration: Half day

Izmir, Turkey

Izmir, more than 12000 square kilometres big and home to more than three million people, is Turkey's third-largest city. It presents itself as a modern, teeming metropolis, but, as we tour Izmir, its magnificent ancient past comes alive. The remains of the ancient agora, built by Marcus Aurelius in 178 BC, lie at the heart of the city. Our guides will also show you the only two-storey agora yet discovered; its first floor was dedicated to trade, manufacturing and storage, its second to civic meetings and retailing. Many of the artefacts recovered from this remarkable site are on display at Izmir New Archaeological Museum.
