Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Yes they did have to organize their bathroom facilities, and here is what is left of one. It was all public back in those days and public health was not assured.

Interesting to see these toilets from the Roman times!! It was part of our tour and have to agree it is unique to see that everyone using them had no privacy!!

Located inside the ruins of Ephesus, it’s on the right side only a few hundred metres once you enter the ancient city.

It’s more of a quirky photo op but make you think about how a public toilet was set up in that era ‘no privacy’

Make sure you look for it when visiting Ephesus.

This attraction is not located at the main road. I saw tourists entering a narrow passage way, followed tnem and found this public latrine. We all giggled when we saw a guy pretending to be using it.

I wondered how they were using it in the ancient time. They seemed to be very closed to each other and no privacy at all!

Being one of the major cities of the Empire during ancient times , you can see how they do it during the earlier period. But hearing our tour guide, we knew how unhygienic those times were. Roman feels with its architecture and methodology.

It was part of the Ephesus Archeological Site. You will walk to it if you pay attention to every corner.

This is the largest and most well-preserved set of Roman toilets I have seen. It always amazes us today how public, quite literally, their toilets were! In a weird way this was one of my favourite parts of Ephesus (although it doesn't compete with the big hitters here of course!),

Of course they had toilets, I just never thought about how they worked back then. Our guide was descriptive about how they built an underground sewer system, parts of which are still visible as you walk the ruins. Nicely shaped toilets offered no privacy, but they were effective and sanitary.

This is quite an unusual site to see in Ephesus - a three side row of public toilets, with waste holes set one next to another. In front of the seats you can spot a channel through which fresh water for cleaning flowed. This public toilets are just next door to magnificent Hadrian Temple.
Besides Ephesus such engineering you could only see in Nazi concentration camps, but without flowing water beneath - more primitive despite the 20 c.
