“Awesome sight”
Reviewed 25 August 2014 via mobile

Incredible place to visit. It is best to go with a tour guide to get the insights into each of the buildings. Be prepared for many slippery marble steps

“Ancient City of Ephesus”
Reviewed 24 August 2014

What a mind boggling experience this ancient city has in store.
I would get there early as the bus companies and the visiting shipping lines make this a must see venue.
Easy walk,although the ground is uneven and the photography is fabulous,and the history excellent.
Could not recommend this site any higher than tremendous

Reviewed 24 August 2014 via mobile

What a wonderful site to visit you do need to be fairly fit as there is a lot of walking involved and very few places to rest I to a guided tour you can also take a head phone guided tour take plenty water and a hat there is no shade at all but it is a tour not to be missed even if you have not tried this type of tour before.

“Magnificent Roman Ruins !!!”
Reviewed 24 August 2014

This takes your breath away knowing that you are probably walking in the same marbled steps that Hercules walked on. The notion that they had proper toilet areas in the ancient times makes you realize that man hygiene has always been around.
Ensure you have your cameras fully charged, you will always find something to snap just around the corner. Take a seat and soak in the sights.
Climb the steps of the theatre , walk down and up the road to the harbor , stroll inside the hamman and library and marvel at the organization of such an ancient city.
