  • Went on a guided tour of the site and a lot of work has been done since my last visit 18years ago. What was a hill previously is now a row of terraced houses with incredible mosaic floors and walls...

  • I would recommend doing the archeological site first, and then the Ephesus Museum in Selcuk. You can buy a ticket for four sites - Ephesus, the Terrace House in Ephesus, the Ephesus Museum, and St...

  • If you want to understand Ephesus, you should visit this museum. Here you can look at ancient idols very close. "But when they knew that he was a Jew, all with one voice about the space of two hours cried out, Great is Diana of the Ephesians." - Bible
  • Easily 2-hours wandering and wondering in this part of this ancient city, look for the Temple of Artemis - simply awesome.
  • Amazing place, we probably didn't go at the best time because it was extremely hot and there isn't much shade. Some of the facilities were closed due to covid.
  • Most stunning experience - one of the greatest cities of the ancient world preserved in way I didn't even expect. Beauty of the city and it's size simply shocks. One of the greatest places to visit in Turkey.
  • Ephesus is an ancient city in Turkey’s Central Aegean region, near modern-day Selçuk. Its excavated remains reflect centuries of history, from classical Greece to the Roman Empire – when it was the Mediterranean’s main commercial center – to the spread of Christianity. Paved streets wind past squares, baths and monumental ruins. The Temple of Hadrian was built before 138 A.D. for Emperor Hadrian’s visit.
