Turkey - Izmir & the North Aegean (Chapter)
This is the İzmir & the North Aegean chapter from Lonely Planet’s Turkey guidebook.
Beaches along the Ege Deniz (Aegean Sea), including the Biga Peninsula, are superb (and often empty), while on the Çeşme Peninsula, Alaçatı offers world-class windsurfing. At the same time, this region is a colossus for history buffs.
- ferry over to idyllic Bozcaada to lounge on the beach and indulge in fine local wine and dining
- take a cable car to the Acropolis at Bergama (Pergamum; p189), one of the country’s finest ancient sites.
- wander the crumbling, atmospheric back streets of the old town in Ayvalık.
- restaurants & accommodation
Coverage includes: Bozcaada, Behramkale (Assos), Bay of Edremit, Ayvalık, Alibey Island (Cunda), Bergama (Pergamum), Foça, İzmir, Manisa, Çeşme, Alaçatı and Sığacık.
