Very beautifully organized and done, but not worth the money. Almost no night to watch. The souvenirs sold there are in Euro prices

Visited this small house (Virgin Mary’s House) as part of a guided tour to Ephesus. Not much to see to be honest so you could miss it out and spend more time at Ephesus itself.
