Fascinating the world with her bright star shine coming from the Mediterranean, izmir has always been the place in which different religions and ethnicities have lived together in harmony under the Aegean Sun.

The harmony of different religions and ethnicities under the Sun which have endured for hundreds of years reminds the one a “symphony”. This symphony that all the instruments are played in consonance is the “Symphony of Beauty”. Tolerance is the maestro that saves the consonance of this symphony which anyone who sees or listens to it is amazed.

And especially at the center of izmir where the steady summer south wind breezes… The gulls flying graciously in Kordonboyu, boats’ whistles at the Bay, Time at Clock Tower… This travel joined with the irresistible delights of the Aegean Region will offer unforgettable memories…
