Seferihisar is known as the capital of the quiet towns in Turkey. Thanks to its natural beauties, houses that you won’t be able to take your eyes off of, and world-famous beaches, it’s one of those places where you feel like the time stands still. In 2009, Seferihisar adopted the slow life philosophy by joining the Cittaslow movement. It’s now the perfect place for slowly sunbathing on the sparkling sand, enjoying a clear sea, visiting historical buildings such as Teos Antique City and Sığacık Castle, and discovering many bays with boat tours. If you're tired of the chaos, why not take a breath in this charming town that preserves its natural beauty?
Selçuk: A treasure of history and a paradise of nature
Thanks to its cultural and historical values, Selçuk is one of the leading tourism destinations in Turkey. The ancient city of Ephesus is just one of the historic districts that make İzmir elite worldwide because of its cultural assets. The first settlement in this district adorned with historical textures dates back nearly eight thousand years.
İzmir has been a fascinating city since ancient times. “They established their city under the most beautiful sky and in the best climate we know on earth.” said Herodot about it. Aristotle told Great Alexander that he’d be incomplete if he didn’t see İzmir. Victor Hugo, the great author, wrote poems for İzmir, and called it a ‘princess.’
