Izmir Jewish Sites

Then we will drive to Elevator, The Historical Elevator is the best structure to catch the unique view of Izmir Bay with its promenade at the top. The elevator was built in 1907 by Jewish businessman Nesim Levi to overcome the topographical barrier between hill neighborhoods above sea level. Dario Moreno Street, There are old Greek houses lined up left and right in this beautiful street, which was named after the famous artist Dario Moreno from Izmir and was formerly called Elevator Street.

There is also the house on the street where Dario Moreno lived for a while. These houses, each of which has been transformed into small and cute cafes and art workshops today, add a different spirit to the street., Then drive to Konak Square, visit the clock tower, Izmir Clock Tower, the symbol of Izmir, is the Ottoman Sultan of Sultan II. It was built in 1901 as part of the 25th-anniversary celebrations of Abdulhamid's accession to the throne.

Kemeralti Bazaar, is called a well-established commercial area. This commercial square, which was started from the Hisar Mosque built in Izmir in 1592; has grown more and more. Since the 19th century, inns and covered bazaars were located in the Kemeralti Bazaar, which has been the liveliest trade point in İzmir.

However, the shops here were referred to as small businesses that local people were interested in. Options such as blacksmith, coal maker, nail maker, spice and straw bazaar were located in Kemeralti Bazaar in the past. Commercial shops in different areas were also located at different points.

Then We walk to Kazlaragasi Inn, It was built by Kızagasi Haci Besir Aga in 1744. It has two floors and a large courtyard in the middle. It is upstairs facing the courtyard, with 5 columns, and 6 rows of arches. It is a magnificent structure of 4000 square meters, with a rectangular plan close to the square, a 2-story, a single-story covered bazaar in the northern section, and a large courtyard of approximately 600 square meters.

There are antique shops on the upper floor. On the lower floor, shops selling touristic and authentic goods. Silversmiths, souvenirs, everything authentic, antiques, old radio repair shops; come and get lost among them, shop. Sip your tea or Turkish coffee in the courtyard with simit and Turkish delight. When you want to make a nostalgic trip to Izmir, one of the first places that come to mind is Kizlaragasi Han.

When you are tired, sitting in the historical courtyard with tea or coffee is a different pleasure, it takes your soul away. In our opinion, this should be the first order of trips to be made to Izmir. Then we will pass to open-air museum of Izmir. Izmir Agora, The ancient city of Smyrna is a commercial center. Think of it as the biggest of the current biggest Malls. 2400 years old shopping mall.

Current ruins must mostly be 1800 years old. The square, columns, indoor and outdoor area shops, and fountain are still standing. It is located in the Konak District of Izmir today, which was established on the skirts of Kadifekale (Pagos Mountain) in Izmir and (Smyrna), was used as the city-state agora. This state agora was connected to the commercial agora in the port by a wide street on its north side.

Izmir Agora is the largest state agora in the city. And was founded in the 4th century BC. It Functioned as the State Agora of the City at the Time. After the earthquake in 178 AD, it was rebuilt with the support of the Roman Emperor Marcus Aurelius. It was used as a cemetery and prayer place in the Ottoman Period. The first excavations in the region were carried out in 1932.

Izmir Castle (The Velvet Castle), Kadifekale is the most beautiful spot where you can watch Izmir from a panoramic view. It is nice to be intertwined with history and to watch the city from a vantage point.

Herodotus referred to it as the Pagos mountain. It was built about three hundred years BC and has survived to this day. It is a very good fortified and surveillance place for old Izmir. It is in a position where you can see every direction from east to west, from north to south.

Kadifekale is a place that symbolizes the first foundation years of Izmir and where you can view 360 degrees around Izmir.
