I get the sense that Izmir is often overlooked. People pass through it on their way to Ephesus or Çeşme. They spend a day of their cruise here and take a guided tour.
My goal here is simply to share some of what I have experienced while exploring Izmir on my own. I moved to Izmir in 2014 and have slowly been discovering all that the city has to offer.
This is by no means a complete guide, but I hope that this helps people find some of the great and often overlooked things that Izmir has to offer.
