    What to Expect
    This tour begins at the Izmir cruise port, where a private guide will meet you at a time that’s convenient to your cruise schedule: you can book this tour worry-free, as a full refund will be offered if you miss this shore excursion because your ship is delayed.

    The first stop of the day is the Velvet Castle, or Kadifekale, a hilltop fortress with sweeping views across the city and the Gulf of Izmir. From Kadifekale, continue to the ruined, ancient agora, a Roman market with well-preserved stone arches, cisterns, and chambers that offer a fascinating look at daily life more than two millennia ago.

    Learn more about that local heritage at the Archeological Museum of Izmir and the Ethnography Museum, whose collections include everything from Bronze Age artifacts to Greek and Roman statues, and cultural exhibits covering Turkish arts, crafts, and customs.

    Make the final stop of the day at the 82-foot (50-meter) high clock tower that’s become a symbol of the city, then enjoy some free time to soak up the laid-back, seaside atmosphere, or shop for souvenirs. This 5-hour tour concludes with drop-off at your cruise ship, and you’ll be back on board with time to spare: in the unlikely event your ship has already sailed, your local operator will arrange transportation to the next port of call (terms and conditions apply).
