We spent about 2,5 hours walking through the incredible ruins of Ephesus. It is a truly unbelievable experience. We also paid the extra to see the sloped houses - absolutely worth it. If you are in Turkey for a week or two and visiting a...More

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 !
