Without a guide it would have been very difficult to understand what we were looking at as the baths are in such a state of ruin.

Remains of a bath house in the city. This was part of a tour with NCL. They did a good job. Great value. Highly recommended.

The only thing you can dip in here is now dust unfortunately. Roman baths were busy social centres where you met people and went to see and be seen. A little basic knowledge is required to interpret the layout of a roman bath and this ruinous site is no exception. There was a hypocaust ( underfloor heating ) a cold... More

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...
