A must do if you're in the vicinity of Izmir or Kusadasi. In my opinion, it makes the Acropolis look like a pile of stones in comparison (a harsh criticism, as we enjoyed our visit to the Acropolis as well), and I would say is comparable to the Roman Forum in Rome. We visited with a two and four year old and in the heat of the day, it was a bit taxing for them looking at a bunch of old ruins. We just needed to find ways to keep them engaged during the visit which required a little research on Ephesus ahead of time. Strollers and wheelchairs here are okay for 90% of the ancient city as rudimentary ramps have been built/placed near areas with stairs. Ground is very uneven in places so watch footing. There are only a couple areas that are inaccessible by stroller/wheelchair to include the theater, although a great outside view of the theater can be seen at the last 100m or so of the city. As another visiter pointed out, a guide would improve the visit as there are not many signs/displays in the city. Wear a hat, comfortable footwear, and bring water, it's WARM during summer months. Ladies in fancy footwear didn't look so fancy stumbling around on the uneven ground. Absolutely worth a visit.
