Enjoying the scenery from your air-conditioned motor coach, travel to a bustling marketplace, located either in Kusadasi or in a nearby village. From sunrise to sunset, the locals gather to sell their products, which range from fruits, vegetables, honey and cheeses to a variety of textiles. Walking through the maze of vendor stands, you will be intrigued by the fascinating array of goods. You may also find it interesting to know that this type of market is called pazar, a word from which the word bazaar is derived.
After your investigation of the marketplace, journey to Kirazli, admiring the green hues of the valleys and spectacular views of the gulf en route. The Kusadasi countryside is known for its agricultural traditions, with cotton, grains and olives being the most widely produced crops.
On arrival in the village, experience Turkish culture and hospitality as you walk along the streets. View the old-fashioned stone-and-stucco houses, encounter friendly villagers and see the vineyards and orchards growing on nearby hills.
Afterwards, visit a workshop, where local leather items are produced, and upon arriving in Kusadasi, you will have time to explore the town independently before returning to your ship.
Please note: It is recommended that guests dress in casual clothing, hat, sunglasses and sunscreen, as well as wear flat, comfortable shoes. The order of sights visited may vary.
