Kuşadası, Turkey Kuşadası photo gallery 10 of 14
The Yilanci Burnu headland, Kusadasi, Turkey at My Favourite Planet
View southwards from Güvercin Ada (Dove or Pigeon Island) to the Yilanci Burnu headland.
The Genoese fortress on Güvercin Ada is currently closed for renovation.
See Museum Boom part 1 at The Cheshire Cat Blog.

You can still walk along the causeway and around the foot of the fortress.
 
The Yilanci Burnu headland, south of Guvercin Ada (Dove Island), is thought to be the site of the ancient Ionian settlement Neapolis (Νεάπολις, New City). It seems very little archaeological exploration has taken place here to substantiate this theory (see A brief history of Kuşadası).

The view southwards toward Samsun Daği (the Greek Mount Mykele) on the Dilek Peninsula (left). The countryside, coast and beaches from Kuşadası to the Dilek Peninsula - Büyük Menderes Delta National Park (Dilek Yarımadası Milli Parkı, known locally as Milli Parkı) are famed for being the most beautiful in Ionia. On the other side of the mountain is also the ancient city of Priene.

On the right of the photo is the eastern tip of Samos. Just behind the headland in the foreground, Greece and Turkey are just a kilometer or so away from each other and sometimes it is difficult to see where the mainland ends and the island begins.

From Kuşadası it is easy to take day trips to a number of fascinating historical sites, for example Ephesus, Priene, Miletus and Dydima. See Ionian spring, a 3-part photo essay about Ionia at The Cheshire Cat Blog.
