Interesting and detailed stone cravings, worth taking the time to stop and look at this. Makes tou realise how advanced civilisation was 100 BC.

It is much left of the bath. You can see parts here and there of remains and of the infrastructure that supported the bath. Not very well restored and hard to get the picture. Still worth to drop into while walking through the complex of Ephesus.

An enlightening bit of information that we did not know about. Surely there had to be more here than what is left. A bit of humor during the tour!

This is very early in your tour of Ephesus and will prepare you for much of what you will see: mostly ruins with the quality carvings moved forward for better view. The Baths of Varius are mostly the remaining brick-work of the core building. There are larger stone arch doorways but other than that, just plain brick. 5 minutes or... More

Romans valued personal hygiene and used these baths on a regular basis. Medieval Europe festered in it`s own filth while the Turks adopted this technology. The building is not in a great shape and you need a bit of knowledge about Roman bath houses to make it out what are you seeing. It had a hypocaust (to heat the water),... More

Again, you need imagination here. There is not much left so you can't see directly how it used to look like. The facinating thing is that they had baths then, but after them the people went mental, becouse we had a time when we didn't wash.... we thought that washing will get us sick... So my opinion is that the... More

These baths also need a bit of imagination to go with them. There was a hot room, a relaxation room and a cold room.

This culture valued cleanliness and sanitation and it was interesting to hear how the Roman baths worked.
