  • Begin your day at Izmir’s historic Basmane station. Here you can soak up the local atmosphere as you take a stroll before hopping on a local train to Kemeraltı market, a vibrant and historic bazaar. You can spend a good couple of hours here, exploring the narrow alleyways lined with cafés, workshops, and small eateries.
  • After a morning of exploring, enjoy an authentic Turkish meal at Kızlaragasi Han, a distinctive old inn that serves traditional Aegean cuisine including gozleme, a flatbread cooked on a griddle. After lunch, walk to Konak Square which is famous for the iconic Izmir Clock Tower.
  • The best way to end this adventure is with the sunset at Kadifekale. The climb up to Kadifekale is an adventure in itself, but the panoramic view over the city and bay makes it worth the effort. Together you can reflect on your day's journey and witness a part of Turkey's history through this magnificent view.

Preparation steps:

  • As mentioned before, the key part here is the train tickets from Basmane to Kemeraltı. You can easily grab these at the station itself.
  • Also, before you arrive at Kızlaragasi Han, we suggest making a reservation upfront to avoid any waiting time.
  • For the climb up to Kadifekale, make sure to put on your comfortable walking shoes and pack a light jacket if you plan to stay until after dark.

Some tips:

  • Sometimes, getting on a local train without the exact destination or time in mind can be quite exciting. It gives you the freedom to explore and allows for some thrill in your date.
  • At Kemeraltı market, haggling is expected. You should expect to pay about half or two-thirds of the original asking price. Don't be afraid to get involved, your partner would definitely admire you for that.
  • Kadifekale is regarded as a safe area, but for your comfort, we suggest visiting before sunset.
