Stay to see the 10 minute video until it comes around in you language - runs in a loop between Turkish, German and English, although the German version has the most information.

Visited ephesus, 20 years ago went back to see the Roman villas, well worth paying the extra to go in and see. Make sure you go in the morning it gets very hot
