We start with the ancient city of Klazomenai which is an Ionia city for the tour program. We observe rectangular house structures and old olive oil workshops and listen to the instructions of our guide. Located in Limantepe and founded in the iron age, this city was named as a quarantine island. You will also be witnessing the history of the old hospitals as you tour this island, where old-fashioned infectious diseases are brought. Then we are visiting the Malacca and Arasta Bazaar.
These two places have always been a very important commercial center, and even today, they have not lost their historic texture. We shop around here and give a coffee break. If you like, you can also enjoy the taste of cheese cookie and artichoke sweet.

Many events are held in summer and winter to provide cultural and artistic interaction. We look at old stone houses on this street and listen to the guides and give the photo break. We visit antique shops and shop at souvenir shops. Our last stop is a wine house on Urla Vineyard Road. Here we visit wine production areas. Then we take a break for lunch and taste the Aegean’s delicious fish.
