    weddings and honeymoons
    İzmir, Çeşme and Urla

    “The Pearl of the Aegean” is one of Türkiye's most beautiful cities with waterfront promenades and palm-lined boulevards. İzmir is the modern face of Anatolia and its portal to the West. It has been home to different cultures, religions, and civilizations for centuries. İzmir also provides the convenience of reaching the gateway to two of Türkiye’s popular tourist destinations: Çeşme and Urla are reachable by car in less than an hour.

    Çeşme, with its beautiful beaches, crystal clear waters, and opportunities including yachting and windsurfing, is a dream location for boutique, intimate weddings and honeymoons. The one-of-a- kind hotels with gardens in Alaçatı bear witnesses to enchanting romances.

    Urla is a time-honored location that offers stillness, the blue sea, nature, and fresh and organic Aegean cuisine that animate the soul of local culture and modern gastronomy. Among the vineyards and olive groves, there are hamlets, farmhouses, and villas set within walls that are ideal for country weddings and memorable moments. 

    A perfect honeymoon road trip starts at Çeşme, walking down Alaçatı's main streets towards the maze of narrow cobblestone alleys with colorful doors, and continues in Urla for wine tasting in vineyards and a culinary feast at the superb local restaurants.
