A nice place on Konak to start Izmir bazaar excursion. Very nice clock tower on the spacy square. You can enter an Izmir old bazaar easily.

Unless your deep into political history and know the importance of the handing over of the clock, its a symbol of the past that can be skipped

What would a visit to Izmir be without a selfie at the clock tower? It's a pretty and historic site.

I read about the clock tower and was expecting it bigger that it is but was worthy to see it , around it is small plaza and around it you can walk to the Izmir bazaar or cross the street and be in front the sea with restaurants.

I've traveled to Izmir about 12 times on business and I've never made or here. I finally did this trip; because we stumbled across it on our way to the bazaar. It's cool. We took a few pics but if you're running out of time I personally wouldn't prioritize this over some of the other great things around Izmir.

A beautiful square to meet, sit, relax or feed the birds, architecturally pleasing and a quiet oasis away from the noise and traffic of this bustling city, the fountains give some cooling respite for the heat.
