We visited Ephesus on the stop with Celebrity cruise lines. This was in 2016, one visit to Turkey was still occurring. I can only describe this experience as amazing. To see this area, such an ancient place, was just breathtaking.

Try and visit in the afternoon when the tour buses have long gone. Or if you like a couple of hundred people in your pics, go early. Taxi to the top entrance, walk down, and bus back to Selcuk or 30 min walk back, stopping...More

Ephesus is a must see place in Turkey. Best stay at Selchuk if you are in a transit for a day or two to see Efes. You may also stay at Kushadasi to enjoy the sea-side entertainment. I was travelling solo, so I took a...More

I think there are very few places like this in the world where you can almost imagine how someone would’ve lived 2,000 years ago. On the main street we can see fountains, apartments, bath houses, latrines, the very photogenic library and is course the magnificent...More

The vast majority of the photos are of the ancient library, which is certainly very very impressive. But there is much more to this city, and it is certainly worth the fairly low cost of a guided tour for at least 1 visit. Other highlights...More

The name alone conjures up images of grandeur and important historical events. Walking the streets of Ephesus was a dream come true for me. The whole site is well preserved and presented ; if you have a capable guide to walk you through, the place...More

This is a world class site and should not be missed. We did it on a day tour from Istanbul but you can do it in multiple days if you like.

I recommend you not to go there directly and take a guide who tries to be guide of the random people. I can recommend you to book a guided tour from jollytur or even on tripadvisor !
