The old town and the castle of Çeşme

Çeşme (pronounced chaysh-may) is a sea-side resort town on the Aegean, west of Izmir, favoured by international travellers. It lies on the extreme western tip of Turkey, opposite the Greek island of Chios.

Get in

There are several ways to get to Çeşme, it's a half an hour drive from Izmir by car, and there are several bus companies that will drive you to Çeşme from Izmir on any time of the day. Buses from Çeşme to Izmir at the time of writing are around TL 10, ie around €5.

There is one, possibly two, daily ferry(ies) to Çeşme from the Greek island of Chios, the boat ride takes slightly over an hour and costs the whopping sum (for such a short ride) of €23 one-way or €40 return.

Bus services are also available from Istanbul, the route lasts approximately 8 hours.








Town's telephone code is (+90) 232.
