Izmir Half-Day Sightseeing Tour Your half-day experiential Izmir shore excursion begins as you dock along the scenic waterfront. Depart the port and meet your guide, then set off to explore the magic of Izmir. Your first stop is one of the best, ancient Agora, a site that was once a thriving Roman bazaar. Today you can stroll its remains, imagining what is was like during its apex, and admiring the stately Corinthian columns and archways. Next, follow your guide to Izmir’s Archaeology Museum, filled with ancient Roman and Greek artifacts, including the gargantuan head of the statue of Domitian. Then head toward town, where you can see Ottoman architecture. The tower features four fountains around the base in a circular pattern. Stroll over to the clock tower in bustling Konak Square. You’ll find images of this tower and its four fountains surrounding its base on postcards and souvenirs that line the waterway, a prized symbol of Izmir. As your tour comes to a conclusion, take a peek at the scenic Alsancak district and Pasaport Quai along the waterfront, then return to your ship in time for your departure.
