This remarkable historical site was truly amazing. Seeing all the buildings including the architecture was great. The library however did remind of the Treasury in Jordan. Similar in appearance and design.

Did the day trip up from Marmaris which was a bit of a trek. Wouldn't reccomend if you dont like 3hr coach trips. Once there it was amazing, We had a very good group guide who knew his stuff so that was a bonus.

Efes is a must visit place in turkey. We stayed in Izmir and took the train to Selcuk which costed us 1/3 as compared to the tour being offered in the hotel

As part of Ephesus/Efes complex (city) this is a landmark structure. Try to stop in a (shady) corner and just close your eyes and contemplate all the history ... the people who went by ... what a time it was ... lyrical, almost!

This one is the fountain of Trajan (AD 98-117) dedicated to Roman Emperor who was father of Hadrian (117-138).. This is only one of the structures restored. You can see similar ones around ....
