Kuşadası, which extends to the meeting point of the modern world with the splendour of historical richness in the blend of sea and blue, promises a very special life with its sea, sun, cultural and natural beauties. Kuşadası, which is one of the most valuable points of Turkey with its insatiable sunsets, deep blue waters, elite entertainment life and unique flavours as well as investment opportunities, is one of the most special destinations not only in Turkey but also in international tourism.
To the west of Izmir lies the Urla Peninsula with its sea, beaches and thermal centres. Ephesus, one of the most famous cities of Antiquity, was one of the largest cities in the world during the imperial period of Rome. Ephesus, which embodies the richness of the entire Ionian culture, was also known for its intense artistic activities. For this reason, the city was called “Beautiful Izmir”, “Old Izmir” and “la Perle de l’Ionie” (The Pearl of Ionia). Izmir is located at the head of a long and narrow bay surrounded by yachts and ships. Along the coast are palm and date palms and wide avenues. Izmir Port is the seventh largest port in Turkey.
Ephesus Ancient City
In 1996, Çukuriçi Höyük was discovered on the banks of the Derbent Stream between tangerine orchards, about 100 m south-west of the Selcuk, Aydin and Ephesus road triangle. Stone and bronze axes, needles, burnished sherds, spindle whorls, spindle whorls, obsidian (volcanic glass) and silex (flint), shellfish, grinding and polishing tools were found in this mound as a result of the research and excavations conducted under the direction of archaeologist Adil Evren. In the light of the evaluations, it was determined that Çukuriçi Höyük was inhabited and lived from the Neolithic Period to the Early Bronze Age. The same type of materials were also found at Arvalya Höyük in Gül Hanım’s field adjacent to the Arvalya Stream at the 8th km of the Selcuk, Kusadasi road. With the artefacts found in Çukuriçi and Arvalya (Gül Hanım) mounds, the history of the immediate vicinity of Ephesus reaches back to the Neolithic Period.
Samos (Samos in Greek, Σάμος) is an island in Greece, in the Aegean Sea, opposite the Dilek Peninsula. It is the name of the largest settlement of the island, the city, the administrative region (nomos) with this city as its centre, which includes the island of Samos, the island of Achaeria (Ικαρία in Greek, Ikaria) and several smaller islands in the region. It was one of the twelve Ionian colonies established in history.
