Life in and around Izmir

Pictured here is the clock tower, a symbol of Izmir, located in the heart of the city in Konak Square. This is just a ten minute walk from IH Izmir, and a popular place for residents and vistors in the day and evening. 

The Konak Yali Mosque and Kemeraltı Bazaar are located around Konak square, so you'll always find plenty of activity here. Walking tours of the whole Alsancak quarter start here.

For weekends and days when you'll have a little more time to explore, the ancient city of Ephesus is just 80 km south of Izmir. Ephesus was an ancient port which retains its well-preserved ruins. The city was once considered the most important Greek city and the most important trading center in the Mediterranean region, although its now part of modern Turkey. 

For a more intimate smaller town feel, the village of Sirince is near to Ephesus. It's located in the green hills, famous for  olive oil, peaches and wine, and Ottoman Christian archtectiture.
