Interesting place if you got 20 minutes to spend here. Really far away from Ephesus and Pergamos two opposite site places. Just if you got time when around here in the Izmir, you can just dedicate some time to this place.

10TL entry fee. Although the ruins are not particularly spectacular, it does convey an antiquarian sense well enough. Also being Homer's residence is a plus.

If you're in Izmir and you love ancient history, these are worth a 20 minute look. However, you really want to head to Pergamum and Ephesus for a much better picture of ancient life.

This is probably the most important historical landmark in Izmir and especially a good idea if you do not wish to make the 1 day trek out to Ephesus and back Get in tick the box and head over to the nearby Kemerilto market

Hello, This is so easy, when do you come to Izmir port by Cruise ship, than take a taxi and give agora (historical place) adress. Approximately from port to Agora 15 minutes. You'll pay apprx. 3 or 5 $ for taxi.

Yes you are right. Because one for Agor is big shopping mall in other side in the Izmir city (in Balçova). Real historical place of Agora is in city center. In this respect many people live the same problem. Best Regards,
