Izmir - Transfer from Otogar to Crowne Plaza Hotel


Hello friends,

I have a question please :

Should you live in Izmir or know well the city, how would precisely proceed to join Crown Plaza Hotel from Otogar WITHOUT hiring a cab ? I have to do it in September and cannot find a real solution.

Thanks in advance

The hotel is in Balcova which isn't in the city but maybe they run shuttle buses into the city, so ask them, otherwise it looks like a taxi.
Map below of the city, but doesn't go as far west as Balcova.

Ancient Cities


Ephesus Ruins

Bayraklý (Former Ýzmir)
Located at the northeast of Izmir Bay, Bayrakli was the first known settlement of Izmir, which archaeological excavations indicate was probably around 3000 BC. There is a structure from the 7th century BC, situated on the upper part of Bayrakli, which was the grave of the mythological king, Tantalus.

Kadifekale (Velvet Castle)
The old fortress on the hill at the southeast of the city offers unrivalled views of the surrounding area, and at its best at sunset, when the lights start to come on and the call to prayer echoes from many mosques. It was founded in the 4th century BC by Lysimakhos, one of Alexander the Great’s generals, and was strategically placed in view of the harbour and the city. It is possible to walk up to the citadel from the Agora, through narrow streets and old houses, and it remains open although is not lit at night. On the walls of the ruins are Roman and Byzantine engravings and the remaining structures include the south walls and five towers at the west, which date back to the Medieval Age.

Within the crowded streets of Konak, the agora used to be the venue for political gatherings and elections. It was built on the orders of Alexander the Great, probably in the 2nd century BC, and is the only surviving pre-Ottoman monument, although what remains was the reconstruction by the Romans after a devastating earthquake. There are 14 Corinthian columns, vaulted chambers and hundreds of Ottoman graveyards in the eastern section. Many treasures unearthed during excavations are now exhibited in the Archaeology Museum. Mosque, Church and Synagogues

The most important mosques in the city are Hisar, Yali (Konak), Salepcioglu and Kestane Pazari Mosque. Others in the city include Sadirvan, Basdurak, Kemeralti (built in1812), Faik Pasa, (repaired in 1842), Han Bey, Hatuniye Mosque, Seyh, Fettah, Yali, Ali Aga, Selvili Mescit, Abdullah Efendi and Iki Cesmelik Mosque.

St. Polycarp Church, in Gaziosmanpasa, is the oldest church in Izmir and was lavishly rebuilt in the 19th century by the French. St Polycarp was Smyrna’s first bishop, and when he refused to follow the orders of the Romans to renounce his faith, he was burnt at the stake.

clean shoes?

by mindcrime

Shoes’ cleaning in the streets! I remember this custom from old greek movies but it’s really fun to see it in Turkey in our days. People still like to have clean black shoes. In Greece we prefer to buy new ones every 2 months! How stupid we are sometimes….

Anyway, another Turkish custom about shoes is this:
If you are invited into a Turkish house, remember to put off your shoes just outside or immediately inside the door. And of course have to put off your shoes when entering a mosque.

Museum of History & Art

by Willettsworld

This large museum is located in the middle of the Culture Park and is composed of three different buildings with three different sections: sculpture, ceramics and precious artefacts, each one of which I've included a tip on.

The sculpture section features works from the Archaic (900-700 BC), Classical (490-330 BC), Hellenistic (330-30 BC) and Roman periods (30 BC - 395 AD). The ceramics section showcases exhibits from the Prehistorical period to the end of the Byzantine period from in and around Izmir. The final section exhibits precious artefacts such as coins, jewellery, bronze ware, oil lamps, figurines and glassware.

Open: 8.30am-5.30pm Tue-Sun, closed Mondays. Admission: TL3.
