Drawing attention to the importance of tourism revenues for İzmir with a high tourism potential, Yaşar University Faculty Member Archaeologist Prof. Dr. Recep Meriç reminded the cable car project planned to be built from Agora to Kadifekale. What will happen to the city if the project is done? kazanEvaluating that he can do it, Prof. Dr. Meriç said, “It is of great importance to evaluate and diversify tourism, especially in a period of economic problems.

SHOULD MOVE THE PARTNER
The archaeologist who emphasized the importance of Kadifekale in terms of tourism. Dr. Recep Meriç said:'n The good evaluation of the empty spaces obtained by the urban transformation initiated by the Izmir Metropolitan Municipality in Kadifekale is of great importance for tourism. In connection with this, the opening of Kadifekale, which is called Pagos in antiquity, and the discovery of the ancient theater of the stadium and 20 thousand people, which has been the scene of historical events on it, protection and restoration of water structures such as baths, fountains and water canals. is one of the other important projects to be done. However, it is not possible to reach these values on the slopes of Kadifekale because of the narrow roads in these neighborhoods. Ancak
Before implementing the project, which should be cooperated with the scientific institutions. Dr. Recep Meriç, erece This problem, Basmane, Agora, Kemeralti line will be determined by the experts on the route, the Ministry of Culture and Tourism Presidency of Cultural Heritage Preservation Board can be approved. At this point, the ropeway project to Kadifekale, which is also included in the projects of İzmir Metropolitan Municipality, is of great importance. If the cable car construction is discussed in a very participatory manner by the Ministry of Culture and Tourism, local governments, universities and non-governmental organizations, a much better and more accurate project can be created. Such a project will connect a very large tourism center such as Kemeraltı to Kadifekale and take people from the harbor to Kadifekale without using a vehicle. Böyle
Mentioning what alternative solutions could be in case the ropeway project is not technically possible, Prof. Dr. Meriç said, “If it is not technically possible to carry out the project or if the authorized boards do not allow it, escalators adapted with the terracing system can be made. In addition, it would be appropriate to have a motor vehicle road to be planned from Yeşildere to Kadifekale within the scope of this project. It will also be very beneficial to create necessary infrastructure units such as viewing terraces, cafes and restaurants, as well as a staircase system that people can use on foot on the descent from Kadifekale, and escalators in very steep places. The inclusion of archeology museums in this integrated project has given a new face to İzmir's culture and tourism. kazanThis will lead to an increase in tourism revenues," he said.
