We recently visited Ephesus while sailing the Azamara Journey. Each cruise Azamara includes a "Azamazing" event which is limited to the cruise ship guests. Our cruises event was a orchestral concert and dining at the Odeion. What a great experience to be able to watch a concert in this stadium. The arena was a perfect size for our relatively small group. To think that something this old could still be suitable for an event is amazing. A side note, which any traveller to Ephesus will realize, there are a lot of stray cats and dogs in the area. Anyway, if you have a chance to cruise to Ephesus, I encourage you to consider Azamara and with any luck you can have an Azamazing experience in Ephesus and experience the Odeion like few others get a chance to.

The great nobles and thinkers of Ephesus gathered here to argue and discuss politics, economics, and social issues. It played a key role in bringing justice and fair practices to Ephesus.

If you come in from the top gate, this will be even more impressive. It was where the city council met and also a venue for concerts and performances.

This was part of our 6 hour tour through the remains of the city of Ephesus. It is truly amazing how they built this so long ago. Traveling in October the site was fairly busy but going in the summer the line ups would be extreme. Again water is a must.
