92 Best and Fun Things To Do In Izmir, Turkey

With a rich history and modern present, Izmir is one of Turkey’s largest cities.

This location should be high on your list if you happen to be in the country since it is a dynamic city with a lot to see.

You may also combine your visit to Izmir with other destinations like Cappadocia or Greece, but you may find yourself wanting to linger once you’ve experienced some of what it has to offer!

Eating and drinking are two things that Izmir does particularly well, making it the perfect destination for foodies who are interested in sampling local flavors.

It’s also a great place to experience the culture and lifestyle of the locale, especially since Izmir is not as big on tourism as Istanbul.

Activities here include exploring the bustling markets, sipping on traditional coffee, and savoring the different dishes at a Turkish buffet.
