Day 1 : Arrive in Izmir
We enjoy a brief flight to Izmir where our driver collects us and takes us to our hotel. As it is relatively early, we ask our driver to take us into Izmir town for dinner at Sakiz Restaurant. We sit on the beautiful wooden terrace and share mezze, before returning to our hotel.
Day 2 : Ancient Ephesus
After breakfast we are off to explore the ancient Roman capital of Ephesus. It is incredibly well-preserved with stone and marble pillars and arches still standing. A real highlight of the visit was seeing the Temple of Artemis, one of the Sever Wonders of the Ancient World. Back at the hotel we enjoy a glass of raki to toast the day, before having dinner at the hotel.
Day 3 : Ruins of Pergamum
On the itinerary today is a visit to the ruins of Pergamum, one of the seven churches featured in the Book of Revelation. Not surprisingly Pergamum was far less busy than Ephesus and we really enjoyed the relaxed, laid-back pace. We even picked up some bargains in the markets of Bergama too. Not wanting to waste our last night in Izmir, we hit the town again and visit Café Baryum for some live music and drinks.
Day 4 : Time to Head Home
Feeling pleasantly exhausted, we meet our driver in the lobby and head to the airport to board our flight home.
