Cesme is one of the most popular tourist attraction in aegean tourkish coasts. It is located in the west of Izmir. The name Cesme means fountain in Turkish. The name comes from the many springs around the area during the 18th and 19th centuries. In the center there is a 14th century Genoese fortress which was restored by the Ottomans in the 16th century. The Caravanserai neighboring the fortress was built by Suleyman the Magnificent in the 16th century which was converted to a hotel during the restoration of Hagios Haralambos Church as the Amir Caka art gallery in the 19th century.

    Sitting on one of those boats with a cup of coffee, looking out over the blue sea and hearing Turkish music would be wonderful. Nice tips!
