  • There are many beautiful works in. Especially the money bölümünu. Some of the statues inside it doesn't seem real. It seemed as if a statue of Queen canlancak:) Selçukta don't come without seeing the mold.

  • This museum brings together the finest parts and objects found on the site of Ephesus, including the impressive statues of Artemis that are worth the visit alone. Entry costs 10TL.

  • Fantastic place to visit if you're interested in historical places. There's so much here to explore already & much more to excavate. Tip if you have your own transport park in the "exit" car park. You can get a ride up to the entrance in style in a horse drawn carriage!
  • We were fortunate to visit the ruins on a beautiful sunny day during the " shoulder" season. Magnificent and spectacular are the two words that come to mind. We had a wonderful local guide that escorted our small group that spoke perfect English. There are frankly too many sights to mention. I would caution the men and women to keep their valuables close to their person as I observed several suspicious characters that seemed " out of place" with the tourist crowd. Bring lots of film and bottled water and allow lots of time. The Library is truly worth the price of admission alone but there is so much more. I shall return one day and relive the experience. One of the all-time travel highlights.
  • An experience not to be missed.... travel back in time and visit this archaeological site and museum. The library is quite impressive and still stands today (At least part of it) A memorable occasion I shall remember always!! Noted for being one of the seven wonders of the world!!
  • Excellent excavation site. It's a good place to get an idea how the Romans lived, probably better than in Italy. Try to book a guided tour for an even better experience.
  • We were early before the crowds and walked amongst the ruins by ourselves. Feeling like we had been transported back in time. Well worth the visit

Where to stay in Selcuk

Though its close proximity to Ephesus puts the small town of Selçuk on the map, you'll find just a handful of guesthouses in the immediate area. Many are small and family operated--and budget-friendly--and some offer free shuttles to nearby Roman ruins. For more upscale options, explore the hotels a few miles east of Selçuk in the hillside town of Sirince. For luxury accommodations, you'll have to venture farther west to the coast for four- and five-star seaside resorts.
