Izmir Agora Overview

Izmir Agora is an ancient Roman site that is sandwiched between the streets of Kemerati and the hillside of Izmir. It offers a glimpse of the eighty-five years old history of this area when it was earlier known as Smyrna.

It was ruined in 178 AD by an earthquake, but later it was renovated as per the order of Marcus Aurelius, who was the Roman emperor. Explore this historical marvel during your Turkey trip packages, as the ancient ruins narrate a tale of resilience. Witness the architectural restoration influenced by Marcus Aurelius, providing a fascinating glimpse into the past while immersing yourself in the rich history of this remarkable site.
