"a view from the top"
The Çesme Peninsula, lapped by the waters of the Aegean Sea, lies west of Izmir, in Turkey's Aegean region. Çesme, meaning fountain in Turkish, derives from the many sources of water found in the area. It is one of Turkey's most beautiful stretches, surrounded by clear blue seas, with landscapes of cultivated fields of aniseed, sesame and artichokes dotted with fig and gum trees.
"The sunset in Ilica Beach"
The very popular center of Ilica boasts an excellent white sand beach.
I spent only 3 days in Cesme but I had a chance to see all beautiful places. The places are not very far away to eachother. If you rent a car you will see and also discover the nice places. Pasalimani is just an example to these wonderful places.
