What to Buy

        The city has many shopping opportunities especially in the old city area of Kaleiçi and along the ancient city walls which line Atatürk Boulevard. This area is imbued with a uniquely Turkish atmosphere and is sure to impress visitors. Typical handmade Turkish souvenirs (ceramics, wooden sculptures among a few) can be bought as well as old Turkish kilims and carpets, pieces of Turkish art, original gold jewellery, leather products and clothing made from natural fabrics.
Another attraction worth visiting is the bountiful fruit and vegetable markets (Pazar) which are open every day of the week at different districts of the city.
