Very interesting stop. From the multi-seat toilettes used by the ancients, to the secret passageway from the library to the brothel across the street, this stop was fascinating, fun and educational.

Amazing sight. A lot of walking involved but it was well worth. It is an absolute must visit if you love history. It is somewhat related to the bible as it is the city of Ephesus. It is the place where Paul was and preached.

I recommend you not to go there directly and take a guide who tries to be guide of the random people. I can recommend you to book a guided tour from jollytur or even on tripadvisor !

I don't know about the boat, but you can actually book a rental car online. Do a google search and you will find many rental offers.
