Kusadasi Gulet Charter Guide

Kuşadası, which started its past as a port city, is now a leader in cruise tourism. Kuşadası, which is frequented by millions of tourists every year, has managed to attract the attention of both sea, sand, sun trio, and culture tours with its close location to ancient cities.

History Of Town

The region in its history dating back to 3000 BC. In the 9th century, ions dominated. In the area between Büyük Menderes and Gediz Rivers, in ancient times, in the region called Ionia (Ionia), the people used to be maritime and merchant.

Kuşadası was founded in the place called “Yılancı Burnu” by the Ionians under the name of Neopolis, which is connected to Ephesus, as a port city of Anatolia that opens to the sea. Alexander the Great, in 334 BC, he captured all of Anatolia and while the Persian Empire ended, the Hellenistic period started.

There are famous ancient cities in Aydın and its surroundings; Ephesus, Miletus, Priene, and Didyma. While Kuşadası was a port used by pirates in the Middle Ages, it was named Scala Nuova in the 15th century during the Venetian and Genoese period. Afterward, the region where the Byzantine rule was exiled was under Ottoman rule in 1413 by the 1st Mehmet (Çelebi). Due to its location, it took an important place in history before and after the Ottoman period. Tourism, which started in 1965, continued with the first cruise ship tourism. While it was a small holiday town in the Aegean Region in the ’90s, it has now taken on the city atmosphere.
