I didn't realize that Ephesus was so huge! Such a great way to spend the afternoon, so much history. Images of Hercules, the seriously impressive library, even the ancient toilets were pretty cool to see.

Ephesus certainly evokes a lot of historic significance at every nook and corner. The relics and ruins are very well preserved and presented through an audio tour. The walk is barely a kilometre long downhill but will take over an hour with small stops. There...More

I suggest you try to go early in the morning in order to get there before the tourist buses. We did not take a guide as there was a fair amount of information available. Plan for half a day.

Very well preserved this historical place. I strongly recommend to study before visit it, and also read in the Bible all related to this important place.

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 !
