Fodor's Review

The delightful waterfront promenade is the most fashionable section of town and is perfect for a summer stroll; many locals use the sea breeze to fly kites. It starts at the museum complex in Bahribaba Parkı, in Alsancak, and stretches north along the busy harbor, past Konak Meydanı. Along the grassy, waterfront strip are several excellent seafood restaurants and cafés, all with outdoor seating overlooking the Aegean sea. It's fun to tour the area by fayton (horse-drawn carriage); they are stationed in the Cumhuriyet Meydanı, steps from the beginning of Kordon (be sure to agree a fair price in advance).
