Beautifully preserved as a main street, the road winds its way down the hill (or up it if you choose the harder way to do Ephesus). You really get a picture of the commerce and activity that occurred along the road from the ruins still...More

This is the main street leading down to the Library. It had shops on both sides and is well preserved. Try to get there early to see this before the crowds appear. Get a guide!

Visited Ephesus and had a guided tour. Amazing, simply amazing. The way it's been preserved and rebuilt is inspirational. The guides all seem to be so passionate and knowledgeable, which is wonderful and the place itself is fascinating. You can virtually picture yourself as part...More

Fantastically well preserved street that was the centre of action 2000 years ago serving as a marketplace and meeting place. You can almost imagine how it was. If you visit you have to walk down the street. Enjoy!

This is part of Ephesus. It is the main road within the city and it is amazing that it was built so long ago. It is part of a road system within Ephesus.

As in the title, the curates street was where the main houses/stores etc were. It's a good steep climb, so better to walk down than up. In places you can still see the stone metal rings where they would rest and tie off their goods...More

The most interesting part of the street is from the top where Hercules Gate is down to the LIbrary. It is rare to get photos without people in it--but it is possible if you enter when the site opens and you go directly there. Off...More
