Explore Izmir’s Konak Square
Visit southern Izmir to see the traditional Konak Square that can be found between the popular bazaar and downtown waterfront. Visit the Yali Mosque and the interesting clock tower then stroll over to the Museum of Modern Art to see innovative creations that famous artists have exhibited over time. Travel to the square in the evening for exquisite entertainment at the opera house.
From the square, take a leisurely stroll down to the bazaar, once you step through the grand entrance you’ll be in shopper’s paradise. Enjoy haggling for a fair price at the huge variety of stalls selling everything from traditional Turkish food and clothes to handmade souvenirs and trinkets.
Afterwards, make your way down to the waterfront for a much needed drink and bite to eat. Sit in one of the restaurants in the bay and take in the stunning views of the water.
