Çeşme

This small town (pronounced chesh-me), located 85km from İzmir, is a popular holiday resort and dominated by Çeşme Castle. It lies on the extreme western tip of Turkey, opposite the Greek island of Chios.

With an admission fee of TL 5, this is not the best sights to see, unless you want excellent views of the town. A museum is situated inside the Çeşme Castle and has a total of 477 items on display, consisting 320 archaeological pieces, 126 ethnographic pieces and 31 coins.

Metro free shuttle from Izmir center to bus station Metro free shuttle from Izmir center to bus station[/caption]There are several ways to reach Çesme, with bus companies from Izmir on any time of the day. Costing TL 7, it takes about an hour and 15 minutes from Izmir to Çeşme. The problem is reaching Izmir Otogar (bus station) – which lies 6km north east of town and although there are plenty of dolmuş that make the journey there from the center, just inquire at one of the bus companies’ offices for free rides to the bus station. I stayed near the Basmane metro station and right outside the station, Metro bus company runs free Metro shuttle buses to the Izmir Otogar every 30 minutes. Just get in that free shuttle!

Return to Izmir center from the bus station in the same free Metro shuttle or ask for a dolmuş.
