when we entered ephesus, we took a right hand dirt road, the first one that you can take, off the path. we were the only ones at the double church and the roman baths...you can wonder all over that area, then get back on the tourist trail!!!! i really enjoyed looking all over the area by our selves. enjoy

Dont go to ephessus in hot weather . IF you can, go on spring or fall.Other than that its beautifull. See also mother marry's house on the top of the hill there. And make a wish... I did and it turned out to be good.

Tips for visiting Ephesus:

1. Be there early before or when entrance gates open to avoid the bus-loads of group tours and the mid-day sun.

2. Go to your local library, find a lonely Planet Guide or other similar travel guide to Turkey and photocopy the map and the notes (notes aren't that good in the LP) of Ephesus for reference.

3. I see many visitors now post their recommendation to purchase the audio guide they sell at the entrance.

4. Remains of the Temple of Artemis or Diana (Artemision) built 600BCE, which is one of the Seven Ancient Wonders of the World has sunk into the marshy ground, if you are interested in viewing the site you will need some sort of guide or notes (eg in Lonely Planet) to know where to look for the site with only one column now standing. Good pictures and information of what it was like on the web.

5. The owners of Hotel Bella in Secuk organised a guide for the day for a friend, cost a bit though - better to do your own research from home if you have time.
