Izmir is a province and the third largest city in Turkey. It is located to the west of the Anatolia region and functions as one of the most important economic poles in the country.
Due to its geographical position with coasts to the Aegean Sea and the Gulf of Izmir, the city is the gateway to different tourist sites in the country.
The official name of the city is Izmir (in Turkish), so once you are in the country, you should take it into account to plan your trip and locate yourself.
