Ephesus was once a bustling metropolis, four times the size of the Parthenon and one of the largest seaports of the ancient world. The archaeological park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is now one of Turkey’s top attractions. Get an in-depth look at the mesmerizing ruins on this comprehensive tour, which also includes a stop at the nearby House of the Virgin Mary.

One of many sites along the main Curetes street. The Trajan fountain was built in honor to the Roman Emperor. It had a big pool with many statues around it including his own. Not much left, but it's going through restoration works.

Another landmark that does not keep much of its former beauty. You need no more than 10 minutes to see it, take a few photos and read the few information on the panel.

Lots of fabulous sights in Ephesus, but Trajan's Fountain not all that memorable. Some restoration going on; perhaps more impressive in the future.

We went there in December 2019 and there were restorations going on everywhere. Nothing much to see except the ruins and read the history on the billboard.

The Fountain of Trajan was built in the second century to honor the Emperor Trajan. The fountain originally featured two ornamental pools and a large statue of Emperor Trajan. The round stone under his foot symbolized that the world was under his foot/under his control.
