Of course it is not a trevi like in Rome, but when you think it is 1500 years older , it makes you wow. Ephesus is very good sightseeing area and The fountain Trajan is an highlight .

As part of Ephesus/Efes complex (city) this is a landmark structure. Try to stop in a (shady) corner and just close your eyes and contemplate all the history ... the people who went by ... what a time it was ... lyrical, almost!

This one is the fountain of Trajan (AD 98-117) dedicated to Roman Emperor who was father of Hadrian (117-138).. This is only one of the structures restored. You can see similar ones around ....

Problematic arrangements of the found pieces of the historical constructions. The arrangement is not proportional but the place is very nice.

Located in Ephesus along the main street of this important Greece and later a Roman town, this fountain is well presented. I suggest to proceed in the visit of this archeological place with a guide that can tell you everything.

Spend some time here and walk through everything. Unreal how people could do all this in ancient years with the tools they had.
