What an amazing experience. The ruins are in such great condition - it is unbelievable. The history, and depth in which you could explore is beyond imagination. I definitely recommended a tour guide to thoroughly explain everything. This is a must see.

Well there's no point me saying a great deal about this site except that it is a must-visit site on the west coast of Turkey and the only one of the 7 wonders of the ancient world (other than the pyramids) that you can actually see anything if you visit. Prepare yourself with comfortable footwear and a drink and maybe... More

A great ancient city in a great condition, You can see so much details about the ancient life, culture and philosophy. Take a big walk around the statues and ask for a guide.

We went in december and it was rainy and cold. It is a sight to behold and one can only imagine what it looked like at its prime. The cats all around are adorable and want cuddles.

If you love Rome in Italy, here is a must visit place. It's quite a remote area but worth to see how great it is and together with the history, you're gonna enjoy it. It isn't a long walk but you can spend like 1-2 hours here.

A must-see- site- for all. I came and spent a day exploring Efes and I will remember it for a long time. One can be sure it was once a splendid city. I was in awe in front of its remaining Roman infrastructure (roads, baths, temples). A special note should be pointed about its amazing library facade (what remains of... More

Well worth a visit to Ephesus and hire a audio set to really understand the place. Nor far from Kusadasi and a great way to spend half a day.

Ephesus is a must see. I've been there twice and would go back again. I love old ruins especially those of historical significance. These are in remarkably-excellent condition. Siding at the top of the stage arena and listening very-clearly to some one talk on stage is amazing.
