Once you get to the street, you will be mesmerized by the beauty of the retro environment of the houses. You will find this historic piece of engineering named Ascensor (Elevator in English) decorated with colorful lights. In the elevator, you will listenfeel back in time with elevator tunes of old turkish music and pictures with 19th century scenery of Izmir. Once in the top, after doors opened, you will find an open restaurant/bar with an awesome view of the Aegean Sea and Izmir coast. Definitely very romantic for that special person you could meet for the very first time.

Built by a jewish philanthropist a brick building. It does not look very tall. But when you get up there beautiful view of the meditaranian and the city of izmir. There is a cafe up there. but dont waste your money. Go up and enjoy the view. Its worth it. If yu are walking its a steep climb from the clock tower. can take a taxi.

It's quite hard to find but I'm very lucky to met 2 very nice local people. They led me to Asansor even though it's far from their house. Very beautiful to have a panoramic view of Izmir and a lovely small cafe too. It's not so far from Konak.

Asansor is a little hard to find, but once you do, having inevitably explored the surrounding neighborhood, it is a worthwhile addition to any Izmir itinerary.


You can read about the history of the elevator and ride up and down it. Best thing is that it's free, so you can take your time and enjoy the magnificent view from the top.

Free lift that takes you straight up the hillside to see excellent views over the bay. And it's free too!
