Such a majestic place, full of history and beauty! I totally reccomend visiting it, but not without a guide, because there are so many details and stories that must be revealed by somebody with the right knowledge. Temple of Artemis - Goddess Diana, lovely!

If you're a history-lover, then this is the right place to visit when in Kusadasi. But since you need at least 1/30 to 2 hours to thoroughly visit the site, you will certainly need a hat (or much better, an umbrella) and one or two...More

I recommend you not to go there directly and take a guide who tries to be guide of the random people. I can recommend you to book a guided tour from jollytur or even on tripadvisor !
