Gentle Aegean breezes blow over the sapphire gulfs and ruffle the silver green leaves of the olive trees along this coast, which witnessed the dawn of Western civilization.

Here stands Homer’s Troy (Truva), one of the most evocative sites of antiquity, recalling the epic struggle of the Iliad. Of the settlement mound’s nine levels, the sixth is presumed to be Homer’s Troy (Truva). To the south lie the ruins of the great city of Pergamon (Bergama), a center of learning and the arts, which possessed one of the greatest libraries of antiquity, containing 200,000 books.

Not far from Pergamon’s Acropolis are the ruins of the Asclepieion, one of the foremost medical centers of classical times. Contrasting with the tranquillity of these ancient sites is the gaiety of the seaside resorts. The capital of the Turkish Aegean is Izmir, the birth-place of Homer. This modern city with its large hotels and palm-lined avenues, possesses one of the five finest natural harbors on the Mediterranean. Overlooking the city is Kadifekale or the Velvet Castle, originally built by one of Alexander the Great’s generals.

To the north of Izmir is the resort of Ayvalik, near which there is a splendid view of the Aegean coast and islands; to the south is the little resort town of Foca, whose inhabitants founded such towns as Marseilles and Nice. To the west of Izmir is the resort of Cesme, famous for its crystal sea and thermal springs, and to the south is the attractive resort of Kusadasi, surrounded by many sandy bays. In the east stands the proud pearl of Asia Minor, Sardis.

In the center of Turkey’s Aegean coast lies the region of ancient Ionia, with the ruins Efes (Ephesus), Priene, Milet and Didim, all reflecting the timeless grace of Ionian architecture. Few cities can claim that their names are so closely linked with mankind’s intellectual advancement as these cities of western Anatolia. For it was here that thinking was first freed from superstition, that the foundations of experimental science were laid, and that “man became the measure of all things”. Chief among these Ionian cities was Ephesus, the Roman Capital of Asia, of which St. Paul asked: “Is there a greater city?”. Along Ephesus’ “Arcadian Way”, Marcus Antonius and Cleopatra once rode in procession; in the great theater, St. Paul preached against the Ephesian’s goddess Artemis; and in a little house outside the city, which can still be seen, the Virgin Mary spent her last days.

The other Ionian cities also had important historical roles: Priene’s chessboard layout is the oldest example of city planning; Milet gave its alphabet to the rest of the classical world and Didim’s Temple of Apollo with its famous oracle was one of the most sacred places of antiquity. Aphrodisias (Geyre) was an important center of art and culture and famous as the home of the greatest sculpturing school of antiquity. A natural wonder of the world are the calcified waterfalls of Pamukkale (near Denizli). Thermal spring waters, laden with calcium carbonate running off the plateau’s edge, have formed this sparkling white petrified cascade of basins ringed by stalagtites. The thermal waters have been used since Roman times for their therapeutic powers, and behind the waterfall lie the ruins of the Roman city of Hierapolis.

In the southern Aegean area are the resorts of Bodrum, Marmaris, Datça and Fethiye. Bodrum, the ancient Halicarnassus, is dominated by a castle built by the Knights of Rhodes, and today the little town is the special haunt of young people. It was here that one of the Seven Wonders of the World, the Tomb of Mausolos, once stood (another was the Temple of Artemis at Ephesus). Marmaris, a modern marina, is set in a deep fjord-like inlet where the pine woods come right down to the shore. To the west, the picturesque yachting center of Datça lies at the end of a peninsula of the same name. Fethiye also lies in a deep bay and on the hills above are intriguing Lydian rock tombs. Close to Fethiye is the turquoise lagoon known as Ölü Deniz.
