What is the appropriate time to book a ticket ?

One should book a ticket when you need it. It’s advisable for one to buy a ticket when many people do, approximately two to four months before you fly because research shows that at this time you are likely to find the lowest price for your tickets. Fares tend to rise especially when you are close to your departure date. It also allows you to know which seats will be available and you can choose the most suitable one. I would advise anyone willing to book a ticket to do so as early as possible.

Are there any food specialities I should try?

Yes! Given its prime location, Izmir is home to tastey fish. If you make a trip into the city center in the evening, the day’s catch is barbecued at fishing boats tied up on the waterfront promenade and served between great hunks of fresh bread. Utterly fresh: perfectly simple.
