Bazaar shopping in Izmir is fantastic! On the Archaeologous tour you will be taken to the famous old, and still active, Kemeralti Bazaar and given time to experience a cornucopia of souvenirs and treasures from silver, carpets, and jewelry, to leather jackets and poofs, ceramic bowls, blown glassware, and beautiful silk scarves. It’s definitely a treasure hunt where you can find anything from copper tea sets to to the most delicate of Turkish craftsmanship,
The Kemeralti Market (bazaar) zone was set up by the Ottomans. So you will experience a mystical step back into the vaulted and domed world of shops of the ancient past interspersed with the modern cafes, theatres, and shops of today.
The Izmir Bazaar is a covered area that is historical and authentic and you might even see men wearing their traditional native costumes and hats. Remember to have fun bargaining the price down – in a nice way—and you'll go home with true Turkish treasures.
