Aphrodisias, Geyre

#2 of 22 in Historic Sites in Aydin Province
Explore the ruins ofAphrodisias, the ancient Greek city named after the goddess of love, Aphrodite, that earned its place on the UNESCO World Heritage list for its abundance of marble and talented sculptors. What was once the capital of Lydia province is now considered one of the most well-preserved of its type in the Mediterranean. Be sure to take a look at the imposing stadium, which once seated over 30,000 for various athletic events. Examine the other remaining structures that have been arranged to replicate a small city: the temple of Aphrodite, the monumental gateway, the Bouleuterion council house, and the Sebasteion. Stop by the museum on site to see some of the most remarkable remaining marble sculptures. Take time for an audio tour if you would like more information. If you decide to drive to the ruins, park in the lot below the entrance and wait for one of the shuttles to take you to the site.

  • I have rarely seen such an awesome museum! I would have never guessed that Afrodisias would turn out to be such a breathtaking place. The findings and artifacts are unbelievably well preserved! Hundreds of giant slabs, pillars, rock carvings are exhibited in the museum. Moreover the display is quite professional which makes you feel like you are in a museum in Europe!
  • Didn't even know there is such a place in Turkey. The statues are protected quite well up to date. A very wide area. It's like dedicated to the whole Greek mythology. A must - see for everyone.
  • Amazing, breathtaking, marvellous, adjectives are uncapable of describing this museum! Must see for everybody on this planet!
  • Nicely preserved roman city, although the temple is ruined. But exhibits in museum are astonishing. Walking around the place is also wonderful.
  • this was my first time and I was shocked how big that place is. if you are the one who is curious on ancinent times, you shouldn't miss Aphrodisia
