Departure from your hotel. Visit Bet Israel Synagogue which is the largest synagogue in Izmir built in 1907. Then visit the Kemeraltı district and see the Synagogues street. Visit the Bikur Holim synagogue founded in 1724 by Shlomo de Chaves, who donated the building to the community for use as a synagogue. The name of the synagogue 'Bikur Holim' was given to it when the basement of the building was converted to a hospital during the cholera plague that struck the city. Then continue to Algazi Synagogue located at the heart of the ancient complex of synagogues in the market place in Izmir, is one of the most beautiful of its kind in the city. Built in 1724 and renovated several times it is associated with the Algazi family, who was a well-known family of poets and rabbis in Izmir. Rabbi Shlomo Elgazi, a disciple of Rabbi Yosef Eskapa, was known with his firm opposition to Shabbai Zvi during the turbulent days of this episode. This synagogue also suffered from ravages of time and nature and was renovated several times. At the same area we will also see some abandoned synagogues then we will proceed to Senora Synagogue built in the sixties of the 17th century, but since then has gone through far-reaching changes, constructions, and many renovations.

The Iranian cuisine is one of the most sophisticated cuisines in Asia. Spices such as turmeric, paprika, dill, saffron, sumac and cardamom are used very discreetly in starters and main courses. The same applies to rose water in desserts.
With rice as the basis for almost every dish, Iran is at the forefront of rice consumption in the Middle East. In the stew dishes (khoresht) people mainly work with lamb meat. The dishes from the grill (kabab) work with many different types of meat such as ground beef, chicken and tenderloin. Rozengeur works with products of the highest quality.
The influences of Shiraz can be found in the use of eggplant and lime in both starters and main courses. As a side dish we serve Salad Shirazi, a traditional salad from Shiraz. We have Paludeh as a traditional dessert. You can also come to us for freshly made Taftoun bread from our own oven every day.
We also serve Syrah wine; the grape variety that originated in Shiraz. In addition to regular tea, we introduce our guests to typical Iranian tea. Coffee lovers can indulge themselves with different types of coffee from Bocca, carefully chosen to fit well with the menu.
