The cruiseport of Izmir is located in Alsancak, about 3 kilometers north of the city center (Konak district) and an area of great nightlife and attractions. It’s a place with great movement and bustle as several cruise ships arrive at once as well as industrial shipping.
The port of Izmir is the second largest in Turkey, which has given the city a touch of prosperity and modernity.
The Konak piers were designed by Gustave Eiffel in 1890 and added a value to the port environment. Around the harbor there are all kinds of shops, taxi services, post offices.
If you arrive on a cruise ship to the Port of Izmir the best option to visit Ephesus is through one of our private tours, in which you will have a English-speaking guide that will show you all the details of the city, with transportation included. From the Izmir bus station you can book tickets for Selçuk or Kusadasi. Both sites are very close to Ephesus.
