“Gate of Heracles”
Reviewed 4 November 2012

If you visit Ephesus you will walk through the Gate of Heracles. Be sure to have your photo made. There is a professional photographer who takes pictures if you want that done. Hard to believe so many people passed through Ephesus and that there was a world famous library there.

“The Myths become more "real"”
Reviewed 6 October 2012

Mythology was always interesting when we studied it in school but to actually visit sites where they practiced it as a religion, is amazing.

“NOT AS GOOD AS I EXPECTED”
Reviewed 14 April 2012

Lots of loose stone and not good for walking if you have mobility issues. I would recommend just a few minutes there but it is included in the entrance fee so take a look.
