All reviews turkey fruit wines small village greek village turkish coffee day trip few hours lovely village couple of hours cobbled streets souvenir shops local produce bread hidden gem selcuk bus station juice fresh air
It's very easy to get to the village from Selcuk. Buses departs from Selcuk bus station every 10-15 min and cost is 3tl. Road is nice, olive trees all around. It takes less than 30 min.
I'd recommend to come as early as possible (about...More
An awesome village in the mountains where you can find the best wines from all sort of fruits. I don't like wine, but i bought 6 bottles. :D you got a picture of the place where i bought the wine from.
I thoroughly enjoyed visiting this tucked away small village in the hills. Had a very peaceful time here. Quaint local shops, with good silver jewellery , cotton shirts, local produce, found all this very interesting . The port town of Kusadasi is very near, easily...More
I read about Sirince before my visit to Turkey. Thought I would find just another run of the mill touristic village. I was pleasantly surprised. This village has soul. Small and narrow roads, charming restaurants. Would definitely recommend
A really pleasant and friendly place, usually filled with tourists. Too many souvenir shops, and only one barber shop (in the covered market), but the two barbers there are excellent. Some good cafes and restaurants (the best are perhaps Sedir, near the market, and the...More
If you are visiting Ephesus, maybe you should consider a visit to this traditional village. Sirince used to be a Greek village, but now very few things left to remind its history. (Like the Christian church for example).
In our days, Sirince is a colorful...More
Sirince is a wonderful experience. The people of this village are friendly. Wandering about the steep cobbled streets is great best to wear stout shoes. there are many small cafes cooking local foods. You can also try Turkish coffee made the traditional way in hot...More
First at the entrance of the village, visit the Artemis stone house, old school building , now a restaurant which holds a museum indoor. The museaum will give you a historic background and idea about the village.
Walk in the shopping streets, taste local fruit...More
we took a minibus from selcuk to Sirince. The bus runs very frequently and so no need to take schedule. It was uphill walk thro small alleys and good enough to spend 2-3 hours if not going for lunch there.
After choosing a terrible hotel in Didim ( Club Tarhan Hotel) we decided to save our holiday by visiting near by tourist attractions. So we got into the car which we rented from the airport and visited this lovely village called Sirince.
I highly recommend...More

Our taxi driver was very good and we agreed the cost before we set off - the journey from our hotel to Ayvalik was 80 Turkish Lira (£22). The taxis wait at the end of the hotel drive. Our driver arranged to pick us up later in the day and he was there waiting at the time we agreed - we paid him for the both journeys back at the hotel so he trusted us to take the return journey with him. He told us lots of history on the way and pointed out points of interest. We thought it was well worth the money, we didn't have to wait for buses, got to meet a very nice local person and got to know a bit about the area as well.
Just about everywhere in Turkey will take Euros and Turkish Lira and most things are priced in both currencies, so taking Euros may be a better option than taking Lira. There are cash machines that you can get Lira from.
Everyone we met in Turkey were really nice and friendly people - you do have to barter through - to get a good price - they expect you to, it is part of their culture so haggle away. When you walk down the street in the town cafe owners call over to you and try to get you to come in - just go with the flow, it's not Britain were everyone is so polite we ignore each other.
