Marmaris

Marmaris

Located where the aegean meets the mediterranean, was host to several civilisations throughout history, and today it has a rich cultural heritage as well as magnificent natural sorroundings.

 

Several modern marinas, many coves along its coast and a natural harbour provide lots of options for the “Blue Voyage”. Marmaris is close to the sites of several ancient cities, and the bay provides ample opportunities for water sports. As one of Turkey’s prime destinations, it provides numerous compelling reasons and sites to visit. During the summer season the population booms with foreign and domestic visitors who enjoy sea bathing along the uninterrupted beach of the county centre. If you prefer there are many secluded coves, reachable only by boat, while others can be accessed by road as well.

“I am 8500 years old...” says Izmir. This metropolis, which is a cornucopia of civilizations and mythology in ancient lonia, has been home to the Amazons, Lydians, Persians, Alexander the Great and his generals, Romans, Arabs, Umayyads, Byzantines, Seljuk and Ottomans throughout thousands of years of history.

Izmir is attractively multi-cultural. From the perspective of cultural identity, its present socio-demographic composition is still characterized by tolerance towards different religions and cultural due to its Levantine, Jewish and Christian heritage. The synagogues and churches, which are open to visitors and still used, are important signs of this multi-cultural character.

 

Summers, due to Mediterranean climate in the region are hot and dry, while winters are warm and rainy. The temperature rarely drops below zero in the winter months. This temperature climate means that for rmost of the year it is a good place for outdoor pursuits and water sports.
