Everybody had told me that Izmir resembles Thessaloniki but I was positively surprised to find out that down town Izmir is perhaps more charming than my hometown.
I could write many pages about this charming city, a legend for us Greeks, but I haven't had the time to do so yet. I did not even scan all pics from our last trip there...

Summer 2003

There is a special attraction that Izmir exerts on us Greeks, the feelings were only strengthened during my last 2 weeks' visit there last summer 2003.
Photos and tips are on the way!

...at the southern beaches of Izmir ili...

Gumuldur is the name of the nearest village to Denizati Campsite.

    Izmir has a special atmosphere always. and your pages reflect it in a friendly way. A real Aegean mixture:mythology, nature and nice people. efharisto..
