  • Museum on the inside of the watch movement is good. Turkey has lots of museums, but this is a special yujeogdo which is why Efes ruins unearthed artifacts in exhibits a lot. A statue of Artemis are on display.

  • Paid 40 TL for this. Worth every penny. The place is huge and full of history. Better to go when it's not scorching hot or it will be a tiring walk. Try singing at the theatre and climb up to get the view of the whole theatre and the mountains behind it. And the forget the gorgeous library. Better to go early in the morning to avoid the crowd too.
  • One of the most beautiful historical sites in the world. If you have a museum card it is free to enter, otherwise it is around d $10 per person. You can easily spend 2-3 hours, going around in this historic site and won't be able to see everything. The excavation is still going, and new sites are uncovered on a regular basis. It is a must to see.
  • Extensive ruins of ancient city. Worth a visit! Ticket is 40 TL and children go free. If you go on a hot day, better bring umbrella, sunglasses​, and lots of water. We were so lucky to find tortoise (turtle??). Local said tortoises are abundant in the summer month and some can be so big. There are 2 gates/entrances that I'm aware of. One is at the top of the hill and one is at the bottom. If you drive, you need to come back all the way to your entrance gate. Don't go out at different gate as it's too far to walk back. Otherwise, you need to take a taxi (I paid 40 TL) or walk for 4 km (according to the taxi driver!).
  • One of those places to see before you die. You are feeling all the history while you are walking through the stone gates. I prefer you to bring water and something to cover your body from UV. Because the area is huge and sun is burning your skin. One more thing. Don't trust sellers and people who comes to you with offers. Most of them are fake..
  • Absolutely loved it! You definitely need a guide to tell you the history of the place but even without it is impossible not to feel in awe of the place. Maybe go in april-may latest as the weather can get scorching hot and it is quite a lot of walking in the sun.
