      Internet access

      by catmandu Online Now Mar 11, 2014 at 9:54 AM

      There is a chance we may be relocating to Izmir for a few years, which is very exciting, but I run my own business from home & rely heavily on good fast internet access.

      Can anyone let me know what the Internet access / speed is like in the residential areas of Izmir.

      Many thanks

    • First Time in Izmir - Any Suggestions will be Appreciated

      by HaikuDream Online Now Sep 19, 2012 at 9:26 PM

      First time visitors to Turkey - 8 nights in Istanbul. Thought Izmir side trip would be a nice contrast to the big city. October 11-14 ( 4 nights)...

      Thought of going to Izmir, Cesme, and Ephesus. Any recommendations for itinerary? Enjoy visiting historical places, local foods, visiting friends' family in Cesme....thought of using Izmir as home base.

      Any hotel recommendations?

      Car rental? Is it better or safer to take taxis/buses?

      Turkish or other airlines to consider from Istanbul?

      New to VT - excited to hear from other members and looking forward to share my experiences when we return.

    • What to do with one day in Izmir - already been to Ephesus and Pergamon

      by DCKT Online Now Mar 22, 2012 at 9:52 AM


      We are in Izmir for one day in April. As mentioned, we have been to Ephesus and Pergamon before. We have also visited Istanbul (as an example of the mosques, the bazaar that we have seen).

      We would really appreciate some suggestions for how to spend our day in Izmir? We are a young family.

      Are there more Christian/Biblical sights nearby?

      I saw Pumakkale, which looked very interesting, but it looks like it would be a 4 hour drive each way and probably too far for us.

      Looking forward to your kind suggestions. Thanks so much!

      Rental car in Izmir

      by Perucha Online Now Oct 13, 2011 at 10:44 AM

      Dear all,
      I'm coming to Izmir on 18-23 Oct 2011 and accompanying a friend who's photographer to shoot "7 churches of revelation" (Izmir, Alasehir, Bergama, Akhisar, Laodicea, Sart, Efes).
      Since we only have 5 days, we plan to rent a (cheap) car with a driver/guide.
      My questions:
      - Do you have any recommendation on where can we get rental car + driver/guide?
      - How much is it per day?
      - Is it possible to go a whole day and back to Izmir every day but cover all 7 churches(we already book 5 nights in Izmir)?

      Thank you very much!

    • Is there a way to go from Greece to Ephesus by boat?

      by Rogelia Online Now May 21, 2011 at 7:17 PM

      My husband and I are going to be in Corfu until June 21 or 22, and then want to go to the Ephesus area if possible by boat so that it is more relaxing.

      Where should we fly to from Corfu so that we can get a boat to Ephesus? How many hours or days does the boat take?

      An alternative would be to fly to Izmir and take a local boat around there...are there boats near Izmir and is this worth doing?

      We only have around 3-4 days for the boat and Ephesus.

      Please advise.

    • Bus or Car Rental

      by caer Online Now Jan 27, 2011 at 12:41 PM

      We're in the tentative stages of planning a trip to Turkey for September, 2011. We plan to fly to Izmir and from there spend two or three nights in Selcuk to visit Ephesus and a few other sites. From Selcuk to Marmaris for the ferry to Rohdes and from Rhodes to Fetheyi.
      Question is: Is it better to rent a car at Izmir airport (if so, any company better) and turn it in at Marmaris or would it be better to take the bus or hotel shuttle to Selcuk and bus to Marmaris?
      Any suggestions or insights would be appreciated.

      My friend plans to visit Pamukkale in August. Because Denizli airport is closed in August, she plans to fly from Izmir to Istanbul.
      She moves from Denizli otogar to Izmir otogar by bus and takes a taxi to Izmir airport from Izmir otogar.
      Is there anyone who knows the proper taxi charge?
      Some site wrote that it would be 20TL to 30TL. Other site wrote that taxis run with meter.
      Last week when I was in Izmir, a taxi driver said it was 70TL at first. Then he was discounting the charge to 40TL.
