Abstract: Archaeological sites located in metropolitan city centres in Turkey are subjected to diverse interventions. However, they are mostly isolated from the rest of the historical environment and become alienated from urban life. The aim is to identify an integration framework for archaeological sites in metropolitan city centres with contemporary urban life. A case study approach is employed, focusing on the Agora of Smyrna in İzmir, Turkey. Literature review on the case and similar cases, analysis of similar cases, literature review on integration criteria, survey, and a Delphi study to understand expert opinion were carried out. As a result, improving the quality of urban life and the good reputation of Agora’s vicinity, and the presentation, management, and usage of Agora itself support its integration. Nevertheless, the ‘presence of public concern for the conservation of the site’ is still the most important for the integration of the Agora with urban life.
