The historical elevator is located in a renovated neighborhood once inhibited by Europeans. The view at the terrace is amazing covering all the Izmir bay and the Alsancak harbour. There is also a small cafe at the terrace, where you can sip your drinks.

Tarihi Asansor is one of the most historical monument place in Izmir. While you were enjoyimg the view, you can also enjoy your food and some tea/coffee/beer. I recommend you yo go there and enjoy your trip. You can also use the device there to have a over view of the sea.

Atmosphere of the place is lovely but finding anywhere to seat - quiet difficult! But mostly proving is reasonable! I mean after coming İzmir it's one of this must go places for sure

it was good to tick this spot off my izmir bucket list, but it was a little underwhelming. aside from the views over the bay, there isn't much more to see.
