Situated on either side of the main road from Soke to Germancik, quite close to Germancik, the ruins are easy to spot as you drive right past them, plus "Magnesia" is signposted.

Not many tourists - when we visited. Cheaper entry than Ephesus. A pity the site is divided by the road and railway. A peaceful place to wander and look at the various buildings/items
