I have been to quite a few ancient sites but this one takes some beating with just a bit of imagination you can picture it coming to life.it is so well preserved with streets and even chariot tracks running along them,there are ancient relics everywhere just lying about ,at other sites they would be on show but here there are too many!
The heat here is fierce make sure you take protection have fun.

As a student of the New Testament, I had to see the city of Ephesus when my wife and I were exploring this area. The stories we had read all our lives came alive. The city is remarkably preserved, and is so interesting both from a biblical point of view and most certainly from an archeological point of view. Of special interest is the fact that Ephesus was a sea port town in Paul's time, while today it is miles from the sea. One word of caution: we went in July, and I don't recommend that. It was 115 degrees Fahrenheit! If you can go during the spring or fall the temperature surely will be more bearable. But even with the heat, we both were so glad to have made this visit.

A must see historical site. Completely taken with the scenery and richness of this site. Allow 3 hours of your time to really absorb the surroundings.

Took a day trip via ferry from Samos having arranged to pick up a tour to Ephesus on arrival at the port of Kusadasi. We were very lucky to have a guide who was actually an archaeologist. I was not prepared to be so enthralled and impressed by this amazing historical site. The sheer scale of the buildings - the Library especially - the road to the port and the amphitheatre just took our breath away. All this was brought to life by our extremely interesting guide. His explanations of the on-going excavations and re-construction of original findings from the site brought the ancient city to life. Some practicalities: Early in the season it was still very, very busy, very hot and so you must go prepared with water, sun screen, hats etc. Toilet facilities and shops are available at the entrance of the site, not inside. If you get the chance, don't miss this amazing piece of history.

Whilst I am sure there are special things about each and every Roman and Greek ruin, they become fairly alike to non-enthusiasts like me.
