Selcuk

4
Ruins · Churches · Specialty Museums
An ideal base camp for exploring the Aegean coastline, Selcuk draws big tourist crowds due to its proximity to the ancient city of Ephesus. The ruins of this ancient Greek settlement represent one of Turkey's best-preserved archaeological sites, allowing visitors to peel back nearly 3,000 years of history and learn about the region's rich cultural heritage. Selcuk itself remains a relatively small town, making up for its lack of modern tourist attractions with hospitality and a laid-back atmosphere. Walk through the compact city center to see the remains of an ancient Roman aqueduct and the ruins of a Byzantine citadel. Use our Turkey day trip app to arrange your visit to Selcuk and other destinations in Turkey.

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.
