Interesting place. You have to buy another ticket to visit Houses with frescoes. I advise you to see film Agora before visiting Efes ruins. It could be more interesting

Returned to take another look at this fascinating place. Terraced house enclosure was worth the effort although some may struggle with the amount of steps. The size of the site is impressive.

I have seen some ancient cities/monuments but to walk on the roads in Ephesus that date back to the 10th century BC and be told that the Biblical John and Paul walked here in 40 AD is very surreal. The Parthenon and Coliseum are a...More
