While staying 3 days in Sirince, we stopped in at the old School building (housing the Artemis Restaurant -top of the hill on your left as you enter Sirince). They advertised a felting demo, being a spinner & weaver I was interested. We purchased a felted rug & had it shipped. The rug arrived & was not the rug I... More

The village is adorable. Rebounding from a sad part of Turkish history when the Greek inhabitants were forcibly relocated back to Greece. Since the 1980s, the village has been repopulated. People are selling handmade things - soap, daisy crowns, knit items - hats, etc. And I -- having vowed to buy nothing - bought 4 (FOUR!) little knit kittens as... More

Sirince is a wonderful town, you get that Greek feeling from it cause most of the architecture is Greek and the village has been left almost untoched for decades... Now they tastfully restored most of it but the unfortunate advent of tourism transformed it into a rolling bazaar... All the shops are tourist related and you're "invited" here and there... More

It's really easy to get access to a good quality dry red wine in Sirince. The village is very charming with cobblestone roads, a small 700-people population, and a endearing and humble personality. The food is all organic, locally grown, and most importantly very tasty.

The places seems to survive solely on tourism, nonetheless it is still a pretty little village worth spending the afternoon. Plenty of picture opportunities!

We had no idea when we went to Sirince that it would be a charming little town. On the way were orange/mandarin trees everywhere (stop and try one). We went to buy some ceramics but ended up staying for a lovely dinner and walked through the cute hill town. It's not far from Efes, so go :)

Good place to visit, interesting history - shame about the souvenir shops that occupy most of the houses that are accessible - found a great place to eat. Nazar Cafe and Restaurant opposite Koplankaye wine shop on the right as you approach the main souvenir selling area, run by a local family - had the best shish kebab ever.

Really enjoyed spending a few hours walking through this lovely village. No hard selling, lovely views, quaint place. Easily and cheaply reached by short bus from Selcuk. Highly recommended.

We spent a few hours here wandering around the delightful cobbled streets looking at the shops and stalls. We also walked up to the church which was worth visiting. Did lots of wine tasting, particularly liked the quince wine which I had never tried before. Lots of shops selling "genuine fakes" if you looking for a bargain. Call in any... More

I love Turkey... I have a family connection in Istanbul and come often. However, though I have been to Turkey 20 times, I have never traveled outside of Istanbul. We came to see Ephesus and stayed at a lovey airbnb in Sirince. I am in love with this beautiful little village! Wonderful accommodations, lovely restaurants, wine shops, and market. And... More
