Grab your snorkel and hunt for Neopolis' ruins.

Near Pigeon Island, this ancient city was once ruled by the Ionians, who used its useful location to control the trade between the region's cities. Neopolis is also thought to be the very first inhabited region in Kusadasi.

Over many years, earthquakes have caused much of the ancient site to sink underneath the waters, creating a sunken city. Today, you can still see remnants of the city - if you remember your snorkel, that is. Swim through the clear waters and try and spot the city walls.
