You can take a night bus to Izmir or a flight next morning which would reach Izmir in the morning. From there, its around 100km drive to Kusadasi, where you can base yourself for next couple of days. Check in to hotel & head to Kusadasi Port. Indeed, as a major cruising port, cruises from around the world dock in yearly for passengers to see the nearby historic ruins of Ephesus. For many, the ruins, bustling town, and surrounding districts are the only glimpse into Turkey they will have. The port area and Scala Nuova Shopping Center boast of upmarket shops like Starbucks, Diesel, and Swatch. From here, a spectacular view of the Aegean Sea gathers, even more, momentum when Ocean Cruises dock in.
