An absolute haven for history lovers, Ephesus houses the Temple of Artemis, one of the seven wonders of the Ancient world. A complete ruined city in itself, the history of Ephesus spans back to 3000 BC. Spirituality spills through it ruins as it was a famous pilgrimage centre of Cybele and Artemis. Once established as the trade centre of the ancient world, Ephesus’ past glory can be ascertained as you meander through its alleys of ruins. Located just 30kms away from Kusadasi, the excursion is a must for people who want to etch out some meaning from the vestiges of past. Within the city, do see Virgin Mary house, Saint John Basilica and Library of Celsus.
