Sardis (Sardes)

Reviewed By Connoisseur-of-Life - Mississauga, Canada

These sites, separated as they are geographically and historically, should be stand-alone review attractions. The Temple is a wonderfully preserved place best visited at opening time when you have the greatest chance for spiritual solitude. No wonder the Christian basilica co-opted this pagan religious site. The Sardis ruins in the town evoke a more commercial centre with baths, shops, a Synagogue and a stunningly reconstructed gymnasium. The food at the restaurants in town is also worth sampling.

Key Museum

Reviewed By jean - paul P - Kusadasi, Turkey

I went there because my son is interested in cars, because some friends asked me about it... so I wanted to discover myself. A bit hard to find, an unbelievable location in the industrial aerea of Torbali / Izmir. But WAWWWWW once I was inside, it is so impressive, so well maintained, so attractive... even for people (like me) who are almost not interested in cars..... A real discovery!

Sultan Camii ve Kulliyesi

Reviewed By hayesy2015 - Mugla, Turkey

In 1522 Süleyman the Magnificent lived in the city whilst serving his Imperial apprenticeship as a governor.
He ordered the construction of the Sultan Cami complex in honour of his Mother, Ayşe Hafize.
Süleyman. The kulliye, complex, included a medrese, a hamam and a hospital, which today is used by the Cela Bayar University.
In March the Cami is host to a week long Mesir Festival of folk dancing and Concerts, which has taken place annually since around 1540.
It is held to celebrate a cure for Ayşe Hafize's sickness, by a local chemist, who concocted a potion for her.
Upon her recovery she ordered that the "Power Gum", Mesir Macunu, which is a mixture various ingredients and 40 spices, be distributed to every citizen of the city, annually.
The Power Gum is, today, substituted with thousands of spicy sweets which are thrown from the minaret, to the crowds who gather below, in a Grande Finalé.
If one is fortunate to obtain one of these sweets it should be placed under the tongue and allowed to dissolve.

Reviewed By 2xhappy - Lancashire, England

Alsançak is a modern, cosmopolitan and bright bohemian district in downtown Izmir. The cafes and bars together with wonderful restaurants and unusual shops create a good international atmosphere where people from all over the world meet. I was served one of the best coffee's I've ever had outside of Italy. Highly recommended.
