We had been to Ephesus before but really wanted to see the Terrace Houses and we were not disappointed. We had an expert guide and it was informative and awesome to see the plumbing, heating, rooms and mosaics of the ancients!

This is fascinating to tour and the frescos are amazing. It is worth the extra fee for entrance. As everywhere, steps are necessary.

The most impressive and thought provoking display in Epheus. More impressive in my opinion than Pompei. It is easily worth the up charge

This is the good stuff. It is still being excavated but it is really cool to see the mosaics and the layouts of the houses. Plus it gets you out of the direct sunlight for at least a half hour. If you have the means...More

I can't believe how well preserved the terraced houses are. The art work is still vivid and the mosaic floors are extraordinary.
