  • The gymnasium is very underrated in my book. It is an amazing complex within a huge area of old sardis which is famous for its ancient alluvial mining and separation of electromagnetic into pure gold and silver. The entire area has been little restored but the scale of the ancient town is bigger than Ephesus etc. The best thing is that only a few tourists go so you normally have the place to yourself.
  • 13Sep14 Roman bath preserved remains with antiquity similar to nearby temple of Artemis. History amazing and humbling.
  • You can hike a bit up the hill and get an amazing view.
  • Such a great site full of history and architecture.
  • Well preserved and partially restores Roman Bathhouse complex. Belongs to the same ancient archeological site as the nearby temple of Artemis. Well worth a detour
