The Turkish city of Izmir sits on the west coast of the country and promises visitors a look back through history, with ancient ruins to keep history buffs busy doing detective work, plus a range of beautiful buildings like the Clock Tower to take in on a wander down to the harbour. From atop the Aegean Sea, Izmir looks onto beautiful blue waters and rustles up some amazing seafood too. Hire a car in Izmir and you'll be afforded to opportunity to see the city's many Roman ruins across many different sites, stretching across the entire region.
Ephesus is the first port of call for anyone keen to discover the ancient heritage which shapes the region as we know it today. Found about an hour down the O-32 road, you'll marvel at what's been uncovered in this ancient Greek city - even more so when you realise it's only about a fifth of what's actually left to be found - hire a car in Izmir and this should definitely be at the top of your travel list. For anyone keen to scratch that shopping itch we also highly recommend a trip to Kemeralt? Market, where you'll find great bargains on clothing and jewellery.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
