The site is not very big, but it is beautiful and definately worth a visit when you're in Izmir. It's right behind the Bazar

You need to pay to go inside (it is a small fee however). Not worth it to go inside considering what you see on the outside is what you see on the inside. There are better ruins to see.

It is a small excavation site. The Book of Revelation talks about the church in Smyrna, which would be Izmir, so it would make sense to come here if you're interested in Biblical Archeology, but there's not a lot to see. Ephesus is worth the...More

Hello, This is so easy, when do you come to Izmir port by Cruise ship, than take a taxi and give agora (historical place) adress. Approximately from port to Agora 15 minutes. You'll pay apprx. 3 or 5 $ for taxi.

Yes you are right. Because one for Agor is big shopping mall in other side in the Izmir city (in Balçova). Real historical place of Agora is in city center. In this respect many people live the same problem. Best Regards,
