  • 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.
  • It is around 3km far from the city of Ephesus, (this is just a small museum that exhibits some findings from the site). and next to an old Ottoman Hamam (Bath). Entrance fee is 10TL (2.5 Eur) as of March 2017. There are many impressive statues, jewelry, coins, mosaics etc. Place also has a cafeteria and WC. You can easily reach here on foot from the Train Station of Selcuk.
  • Well worth a visit. Good to last more about ephesus. Puts the ruins in context.
  • Beautiful Place, a must see!. The intricate beautiful ruins show the quality of life and social status of the city. Few pointers if you are going there: 1. Take a cab: its inexpensive and you go when you want to go and you can leave when you want to leave. 2. Get off at the top so you can easily walk all the way down. Its quite a walk uphill otherwise. 3. Take 2 small bottles of water per person, we got there in August around 10:30 and the place was boiling. It may be better to go in the evening 2 hours before they close.
  • Along with Pompeii, this is probably one of my favourite archeological sites and has to be visited if you're anywhere near the area. I only got to spend a couple of hours here as part of a coach tour but, while this was probably enough time to get the gist of the place, I would happily have wandered around longer.
