İzmir In Winter Is Something Else!

Everyone knows the summer of İzmir well, but what about İzmir in the winter? All four seasons are great here, so we wanted to tell you a little bit about the winter of İzmir. Maybe after reading this article, you will prepare your suitcases and hit the road.

Maybe İzmir is not covered with snow in the winter, but it doesn’t sleep all season either. This is exactly where her beauty lies. As in summer, life continues at full speed! The cold of İzmir does not make you shake, on the contrary, pleasant weather welcomes you all winter. Moreover, it is quite calm compared to the holiday season and as the famous Turkish poet Edip Cansever says, İzmir’s evenings are always beautiful!

“The evenings of İzmir
How someone wouldn’t love them
The lights of Karşıyaka shine on and off, on and off…
Make you crazy about İzmir.”

Sounds more exciting now, doesn’t it? If you want to see the calm but fun face of İzmir, you should definitely plan a trip for the winter!

“You have praised the winter of İzmir well enough, but what can someone do in this city in winter?” you might ask. Well, everyone knows what İzmir offers in summer, but the beauty of the winter is hidden in its obscurity.
