In addition to the historical points of interest in İzmir city centre itself, the nearby centres of Çeşme, Foca, Bergama and Selçuk make the entire region a magnet for tourists. İzmir is also a important centre for Christianity and is visited by many Christian pilgrims every year. The House of the Virgin Mary, located near Ephesus in Selçuk, is considered by Christians all over the world a very significant spiritual place and is visited by more than half a million people every year.Izmir is Turkey's primary port for exports and its free trade zone (a Turkish-US joint-venture established in 1990) is the leader among 20 similar ventures in Turkey. Its workforce, and particularly its rising class of young professionals, concentrated either in the city or in its immediate vicinity (such as in Manisa), and under either larger companies or SMEs, helps affirm İzmir’s increasingly wider global scale and intensity.Many international fairs are organised in İzmir every year ranging from short film and jazz festivals through to tourism symposia. The city also hosts an international arts festival during June and July, and the İzmir International Fair, one among the city's many fair and exhibition events, is held at the beginning of September every year.New, co-ordinated transport policies were introduced in Izmir in 1999, the first in Turkey to apply the lessons of integration. There is a modern rapid transit line running Southwest to Northeast through the city.The city-airport shuttles, provided by privately-operated buses, are devoted to two routes: The first connects the airport with Karşıyaka on the city's northern side and the second to Alsancak in the south. Access to the city centre by train, bus and taxi is possible although a subway that will reach the airport is under construction.

Kuşadası is a resort town on Turkey's Aegean coast and the center of the seaside district of the same name in Aydın Province. Kuşadası lies 95 kilometers or 59 miles to the south from the region's largest metropolitan center of İzmir, and 71 kilometers or 44 miles from the provincial seat of Aydın located inland. Its primary industry is tourism. Her neighbours are Germencik district from northeast, Söke one from southeast, Aegean Sea from west and Selçuk district from north. Kuşadası caters to tourists arriving by land and air, and via the port for cruise ship passengers heading to Ephesus. The Grand Princess docks here, along with other cruise ships. There are beaches including the Ladies Beach, the beach at the centrum, the beaches between the Batıhan Hotel and the Nazilli Site, Guzelcamli Town Beach and the Dilek Peninsula National Park Beach. Along the marina are vendors of ice-cream, carpets, leather, jewelry, and bookshops selling books in English, German, Russian and other languages. Many of the old houses near the seafront have been converted to bars and cafes. These are the remnants of old Kuşadası which contrasts with the newer Kuşadası which has become a modern-European looking town. The hills behind are built up with big hotels and blocks of holiday villas. The building boom in the late 80s and onwards has been continued fueling what some say is the ruination of Kuşadası. Getting around the town is by dolmuş (minibus) and there are bus and taxi services to the nearest airports, in İzmir and Bodrum. Day trips are available by boat from Kuşadası and Güzelçamlı. The city is a port of call for Mediterranean cruise ships. The port is linked by a six-lane highway to İzmir's Adnan Menderes Airport. There are also daily ferry services to the nearby Greek island of Samos. The Kuşadası bus station (Turkish: Otogar) acts as a transportation hub with buses connecting to various parts of the country.

Foça is a district, as well as the center town of that district, in Turkey's İzmir Province. Foça is a town on the Aegean Sea which is 70 kilometers or 40 miles north of Izmir. The district also has a township within its own municipality named Yenifoça (English: New Foça), also along the shore at a distance of 20 kilometers or 12 miles from Foça proper. For this reason, Foça itself is locally often referred to as Eskifoça (English: Old Foça). The ancient Greek city of Phocaea is located between these two Foças. Additionally, Yenifoça, taken over by the Genoese in 1275 and initially as a dowry, was the more active of the two Foças during the Middle Ages, due principally to the region's rich alum reserves, the Genoese lease over them having been preserved well into the Ottoman era. Eski Foça stretches along two bays; a larger one named Büyükdeniz (English: Large Sea) and a smaller cove within that large one, named Küçükdeniz (English:Small Sea), where the medieval castle is also located. Many parts of the district are under strict environmental protection, due to the value of the flora and the fauna and the beauty of the small bays and coves, especially between Foça and Yenifoça. Due to protective measures new constructions are not permitted in many parts of the district so that Foça can preserve its unique characteristics of old village houses.

Bergama is also renowned for its high quality carpets. There are approximately eighty villages that still weave Bergama carpets. The history of carpet weaving in Bergama dates back to the 11th century - when Turkish migration started to the area, most surviving carpets are not more than 200 years old, mainly due to their wool content. The oldest surviving Bergama carpets can be found in mosques in and around Bergama, as well as the archaeological museum in Bergama. Of interest in Bergama are the Selçuk Minaret built in the 14th century, the Çukurhan caravanserai built in the 14th century, Taşhan caravanserai built in 1432, Great Mosque of Bergama built in 1399 and the Şadırvanlı Mosque built in 1550.

If one excluded İzmir's metropolitan area, Bergama is one of the prominent districts of the province in terms of population.

Selçuk is the central town of Selçuk district of İzmir Province in Turkey. It is situated 20 kilometers or 12 miles northeast of Kuşadası, 5 kilometers or 3 miles northeast of Ephesus. Its original name was Ayios Theologos (Greek: Άγιος Θεολόγος), from which the Ottoman Turkish name Ayasluğ was derived. In 1914 it was renamed Selçuk for the Seljuk Turks who settled in the region in the 12th century. Selçuk is one of the most visited tourist destinations within Turkey, known for its closeness to the ancient city of Ephesus, the last house of the Virgin Mary and for its Seljukian works of art. Some believe that Mary, the mother of Jesus, was taken to this stone house by Saint John and lived there until her Assumption (according to Catholic doctrine). The 6th century Basilica of St. John the Apostle, which, some claim is built on the site of the Apostle's tomb, is also located in Selçuk. The old quarter of Selçuk retains its traditional Turkish culture and locality. Ayasoluk Hill dominates the surrounding area, with several historical buildings on its slopes, including the İsa Bey Mosque built by the Seljuk Turks in 1375, and the Grand Fortress. The Selçuk Ephesus Airport and Selçuk Training Center of the Turkish Aeronautical Association is only 3 kilometers away from Selçuk, offering piloting, parachuting, and microlight training. There is also the annual camel wrestling championship which takes place in Selçuk during the Winter near Ephesus.

Ephesus was an ancient Greek city, and later a major Roman city, on the west coast of Asia Minor, near present-day Selçuk, Izmir Province, Turkey. It was one of the twelve cities of the Ionian League during the Classical Greek era. In the Roman period, it was for many years the second largest city of the Roman Empire; ranking just behind Rome, the empire's capital. Ephesus had a population of more than 250,000 in the 1st century BC, which also made it the second largest city in the world. The city was famed for the Temple of Artemis, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. The temple was destroyed in 401 AD by a mob led by St. John Chrysostom. Emperor Constantine I rebuilt much of the city and erected new public baths. The town was again partially destroyed by an earthquake in 614 AD. The city's importance as a commercial center declined as the harbor was slowly silted up by the Cayster River (Turkish: Küçük Menderes). Ephesus was one of the seven churches of Asia that are cited in the Book of Revelation. Some believe that the Gospel of John may have been written in Ephesus. The city was the site of several 5th century Christian Councils and also the site of a large gladiators' graveyard. Today's archaeological site lies 3 kilometers southwest of the town of Selçuk, in the Selçuk district of İzmir Province, Turkey. The ruins of Ephesus are a favorite international and local tourist attraction, partly owing to their easy access from Adnan Menderes Airport and via the port of Kuşadası.
