      First trip to Turkey - Izmir

      by Gareth95 Online Now Aug 22, 2015 at 7:41 AM

      Hey !

      This autumn i a going to visit Turkey and particularly Izmir, and the region around it. Also maybe i will visit Istanbul, too. I would like some information to ask.

      I live in Athens , Greece.
      The transfer is possible by ship or by plane. I would like to recommend me websites where i can check all the possible prices and all of that information about the transportation from Athens to Izmir.

      In Turkey i will stay about 2-3 weeks. Do I need a passport; I had read that the trip from Greece to Turkey needs only the ID. Is that true?

      Also can someone tell me what papers should I have with me during my stay there.

      The currency conversion from euro to Turkish lira where and how that can be done? In the airport where i am living or when i arrive at izmir?

      Hello. I'm having difficulty finding information regarding taking the metro from the airport. Am I correct that the metro line which runs to the airport (and to Kemer station) is running? And can you take luggage (large suitcase and small backpack) on the metro? Thanks very much for your help.

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

    • 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!
