  • It's a very large area and you would need a few hours to properly explore. There are no toilets inside only outside which cost a ridiculous 2 lira. Bring a raincoat or umbrella for rain. The shops outside will sell you a raincoat for 20-25 lira but the site photographer inside will sell you for 5 lira. It's a good place to catch a rainbow and we caught a double rainbow but they don't last long.

  • Great open air town museum. One of the best preserved antique places in whole Turkey. Please read some information about Ephesus before you go there. You will be amazed how rich is the history of this wonderful place.

  • I find it amazing to see what the ancient Greeks and Romans managed to build with basic tools and more than a generous amount of ingenuity. All the normal suspects, amphitheatre, temple's but one are a that's worth visiting are the tethered house's. The are covered and cost an additional 30tl per person it it is worth every penny as it gives a real insight as to how people lived two thousand years ago.

  • A dash of Greece amidst the Turkish landscape. The place is full of cats, as we entered we saw so many cats that we were confused which one to pet. A dream come true place for cat lovers. Apart from that, the Greek ruins is a spectacle to watch and learn. Mentally you tend to rewind yourself to the Greek times imagining what this place would look like when it was full of life.

  • Excellent small but exquisite museum with many, many treasures. A word of warning though; ensure you get a receipt from the museum shop if you buy any of their bronze effect figurines. If you don't, then you are likely to be stopped, searched and interrogated by bored, overzealous and ignorant customs and police officers at the departure airport. Otherwise, a great place to visit. 😀
