The Aegean Region offers so much for its visitors to see and do and, with its lovely mild climate, so it's not surprising that it such a popular tourist area.

Izmir, which is the third largest city in Turkey, is a good base from which to visit other places in this area of Turkey. If time allows, try to catch some of the sights of this great busy city. Izmir, formerly known as Smyrna, is an important port and has a lovely bay and coastline. While you are here, try to visit Izmir Archaeological Museum, which houses some interesting exhibits.

The town of Çesme, which is west of Izmir, is also well worth a visit. It boasts some lovely golden sandy beaches. It also offers a good selection of shops, restaurants and bars etc.

Bodrum is another popular area in the Aegean Region. It was once known as Halicarnassus and is rich in history. Here you can visit Bodrum's Castle of St Peter, which houses the Museum of Underwater Archaeology, and Bodrum Amphitheatre. There is plenty to do in Bodrum, which is situated on a peninsula. It has many shops, restaurants, cafes and bars and it offers a fantastic nightlife, too!

If you're looking for a relaxing holiday, be sure to check out the resort of Altinkum, which is also in the Aegean Region. It boasts some lovely beaches, great attractions, good food and drink, an excellent nightlife - and, of course, a fantastic climate, too!

Not surprisingly, Altinkum, which means Golden Sands, is a perfect destination for a beach holiday. It has some gorgeous beaches on which you can unwind and forget all about the hustle and bustle of daily life. In fact, Altinkum, which is situated on the Aegean coast, boasts three beautiful golden sandy beaches. It's an ideal spot for children and it's a great place for anyone who just wants to sit back, soak up the sun and simply watch the world go by.

Another popular place in Turkey's Aegean Region is Fethiye, which is a pretty coastal town and is a perfect base from which you can explore other areas. The famous Ölüdeniz Beach is only 8.5 km south of Fethiye, so be sure to check it out if you're a beach lover!

However, if you're looking for some ancient history and culture during your holiday, then make sure that you head to Ephesus. It is an amazingly well preserved city from Roman times. You can walk around this fantastic ancient city, step right back into history and see just what a Roman city looked like.
