Cesme and Izmir Turkey. Apr 04, 2017
CESME ----I arrived in Cesme Turkey from Chios Greece by ferry. I stayed one night at Ridvan Hotel near the beach. Pleasent stay. They say that Cesme is cooler that Izmir because of the sea breezes. Cesme is a nice town and resort,nice beaches.--Cesme is situated at the end of the penninsular that forms the Gulf of Izmir.-- I moved on by bus to Izmir.-----------IZMIR is Turkeys main port on the Mediterranean sea, third largest city in Turkey,after Istanbul and Akara. There is a Hilton hotel but i stayed more modest near rail station. Izmir can get hot in summer.-- Airstotle Onassis lived here until 1922.-- To see Hisar Camli, Town Hall, Clock Tower,Konak Square, and old Bazaar ,largest in Turkey after Istanbul. Izmir is smart in parts and scruffy in parts.-- I moved on by train and ferry to Istanbul.
