visiting balcova

by robtinsley

I am arriving at Izmir port for the day Jan 14th what is the best way to get to Balcova for cable car ride?
if I use a taxi will i be able to get one back to the port later
any advice appreciated

Balçova is about 10km to Izmir.I think you can call a taxi back to the port.I hope someone from Izmir can tell you more.

We took that cable car ride in 2007 but we came from the Izmor bus terminus so there was a bus and took almost an hour to reach Balcova. Since you are coming from the port, and sounds like you are pressed with time, so get a cab, it's not that expensive anyways. Check my Izmir page for our cable car ride experience.

Have fun!

Travel Tips for Izmir


by Birsen

It has not yet been possible to state with certainly the derivation of the name
Some researchers say that the name derived from Apasas a city of Ahhiyava. Other researchers maintain that the name derived either from the word meaning bee or the city was founded by the female Warriors, the Amazons. Another story is that Androcles, son of Codros, King of Athens, founded Ephesus. Ephesus was attacked by the Cimmerians in the 7th century BC got back on to its
feet again soon afterwards. The 6th century BC brought a prosperous period of
Ephesus. Later, Ephesus came under the rule of the Lydians and then under the
Persians. In 334 BC, Alexander brought dark days to Ephesus, which was ruled in
287 BC by Lysimachos. Most of the works of art seen today came into being during
period. Later on Ephesus came under the sovereignty of Rome, and Emperor Augustus declared Ephesus a metropolis. In the year 262 AD Ephesus was attacked and destroyed by the Goths and after this, it never regained its previous importance.

Probably the most hip place of Izmir.. An elegant district with nice houses, nice cafes & Restaurants and shops..

The pedestranized streets and surronding roads are worth to see.. The restaurants are always full with people in summer and nice to dine outside..

by plane to Izmir

Adnan Menders airport is the city’s airport, 15km away from the center. It has many connections to other Turkish cities or international destinations. If it happens to be in Istanbul/Ankara/Antalya you can choose one of the daily flights but there are connections with other turkish cities too.

There two bus lines to the city from the airport, one for Alsancak and one for Karsiyaka. I’n not sure about the company but I think it’s Havas that has great service in Istanbul airport too. Taxi is expensive, try to avoid it.

Turkish recipe

by patrikske

A nice Turkish recipe :
-1 leg of lamb (about 1 1/2 kilograms)
-8 bay leaves
-2 tsp salt
-1 tsp black pepper
-2 tsp thyme
Place the leg of lamb in a large saucepan and add enough water to just cover it.
Add salt, black pepper, thyme and bay leaves and bring to the boil. Simmer until the meat is tender for approximately 2 hours.
Place the meat on a dish and serve in slices with boiled vegetables.
