I was skeptical when told I had to visit this (I had been to Knossos on Crete - what an archaeological disaster), but discovered I was wrong. The library is beautiful and pay the extra charge and visit the terrace houses - most complete and beautiful Roman mosaics and wall paintings I saw in several ancient sites. Walk on the road from the old port because St. Paul walked these exact same stones - even if you are not religious, Ephesus is mentioned in the Bible (Paul's letters to the Ephesians) and it's history. You will be told you can do it in three hours - but only if you hurry through. I would budget around 5 hours for this. Lots of photo opportunities and look down for the carved advertisement for a brothel!
