My friend and I are arriving in Izmir on Nov. 25th, and wish to go to Ephesus to just walk around by ourselves and do some shopping. We are not too interested in the tours. Any suggestions for transportation? and is this possible or recommended. We are touring in all the other ports and just want to explore alone in this one. I have read a little about the train system, just wondering if the travel time and train times will make it worthwhile. Any help would be appreciated.
