Izmir vs. Kusadasi? Which works best as a base?

Jump to last reply

Hi everyone. We are starting to plan a trip to Turkey early next year.

As part of the itinerary, we want to do a full day tour of Ephesus to see the ruins and then a full day tour of Pamukkale to see the limestone travertines. We will be flying into Izmir from Istanbul (or possibly Kayseri if we visit Cappadocia first).

My question is - should we base ourselves in Izmir or Kusadasi to visit these places? I understand there are decent length drives each way. But is Izmir more convenient to stay or Kusadasi? Which town is prettier (we'd like to do a bit of shightseeing in the town where we base ourselves).

Thanks in advance for sharing your tips!
