PORT OF KUSADASI
It is located on one of the important coastlines connecting Anatolia with the Mediterranean Sea. In ancient times, Kusadasi was known as Neopoli.
Today, Kusadasi is home to a modern cruise port. The port offers access to see beautiful Ephesus, one of the largest and most important ancient archaeological and religious sites in the world, the House of Virgin Mary, St. John’s Basilica, and tranquil Sirince, a small town famous for its wine and architecture. .
Kusadasi is home to natural beauties alongside important historical sites. The Buyuk Menderes Delta National Park is a huge nature reserve that is home to 209 different bird species and almost all the endemic plant species of the region from Anatolia to the Caucasus.
From the cruise ship dock in the port of Kusadasi, the city looks beautiful. Passengers can walk between cafes and shops, and climb up to the Kale district, within the old city walls. The island of Güvercinada (pigeon island), connected to the mainland by a relatively narrow causeway, awaits visitors with a Genoese fortress.
