If you’re looking for a memorable getaway in Turkey, a Cesme-Alacati tour from Izmir should be at the top of your travel list. Located on the stunning Aegean coast, Cesme and Alacati are two charming towns that offer a perfect blend of history, culture, and natural beauty. Let’s dive into what makes this tour a must-do experience.
1. Scenic Drive from Izmir: Your journey begins with a picturesque drive from Izmir to Cesme-Alacati. As you leave behind the bustling city, you’ll be welcomed by the calming sight of the Aegean Sea on one side and rolling hills on the other.
2. Discover the Beaches: Cesme is famous for its clear waters and pristine beaches. Spend your days sunbathing on sandy shores or taking part in water sports like windsurfing and kitesurfing. Ilica Beach is a favorite spot known for its thermal waters, while Alacati Beach is perfect for relaxation and swimming.
3. Alacati’s Charming Streets: Alacati, a quaint town with cobbled streets, is a hidden gem of Turkey. Wander through the charming alleyways, explore boutique shops, and soak in the Mediterranean atmosphere. Don’t forget to admire the beautifully restored stone houses and bougainvillea-covered walls.
4. Savor Local Cuisine: Indulge in a gastronomic adventure by trying traditional Aegean dishes at local restaurants. Fresh seafood, mezes, and the famous “kumru” sandwich are must-tries. Pair your meal with a glass of refreshing “sakızlı” (mastic) drink for a taste of the region.
6. Alacati’s Windmills: Don’t miss the iconic windmills of Alacati, which are remnants of the town’s history. These well-preserved landmarks offer fantastic photo opportunities and a glimpse into the area’s past.
7. Cesme Castle: Explore the historical Cesme Castle, built by the Genoese in the early 14th century. It offers stunning views of the town and the sea. You can also visit the Cesme Archaeological Museum nearby to learn more about the region’s rich history.

  • star ratingGreat day out - Our tour guide Esra is very knowledgeable and incredibly friendly. We had a smaller tour group which always great because it gave us the flexibility to ask questions and move around more freely. We were in no way rushed and were given ample time to view all the sites. All in all, an incredible day out and I really would recommend.

    star ratingJourney through time to Asia Minor’s ancient empire… - Well managed, punctual and comfortable tour. Our lovely guide, Esra, was knowledgeable, amicable and engaging. Ephesus itself naturally needs no endorsement because it’s, well, Ephesus. Land of gods, warriors, scholars, priests and royalty
