This was an amazing place to visit. It is an incredible, active, huge archaeological site. You enter at the uphill end and walk down toward the city center. Plan to walk over a mile, but it is a pretty easy walk. We had a tour guide and that helped to explain what we saw. Because we were with a tour, we had a limited time. I would recommend at least two hours. The most impressive things to see are the Library of Celsius and the Theater. Ephesus is a great place for some really good photography, by the way. It is easy to imagine the apostle Paul wandering around here and teaching in the market place and the theater. While the Temple of Diana is pretty much gone, the theater where the riot (remember "Great is Diana of the Ephesians?") occurred is still there. Other BIblical characters who spent time in Ephesus include Peter, John and Mary. This is a must-see place!
