After walking along the seaside, you may want to try one of local restaurant called Tavacı Recep Usta. They offer many delicious food that were not occur in our mind when we entered. The waiters were so friendly and kept bringing us so many delicious food.
Second spot highlight is the Ephesus. A great description can be obtained from wikipedia Ephesus was an ancient Greek city and was selected to be one of world heritage. Be prepared to explore and immerse yourself in the ancient stone city and create your own imagination for this amazing tour.
Third spot highlight is Ege University. Ege University is a public/state university founded in 1955. Ege University has outstanding beautiful campus. I was very honor to give a presentation in Trends and Issues of Open Educational Resources (OERs) and Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) at College of Education.
