An ancient bathing complex once adorned in Marble and providing 3 different types of bath to the people of Ephesus. The buildings predate the Roman occupancy, having been built then expanded upon during both the Roman and Byzantine periods. A far cry from the castles and temples of the Medieval period in that so much work has gone into the design, construction, maintenance and expansion of the baths really shows how important public hygiene was to the romans and how advanced they were as a civilisation. And to think, we lost it all and as recently as 1600 shunned people for bathing too often!

When to enter the city from the top road or from top to bottom, it was believed that people do take bath on those public baths. It is to enter clean and show respects to the Lords

Suppose to be a bath house before entering the city. Nice carvings on the stones being reset into place. The whole city seems to have some sort of reconstruction planned for the future. There are some areas covered so people can work in the off season which might be raining more than tourist season.
We arrived via cruise ship.
Please be aware at the end they have shops with vendors selling fake stuff. It's OK to buy a trinket to remember the trip but the gemstones are fakes and so are the spices etc. Buyer beware.

As well they will ask if you want to stop and look at rugs or leather goods. The driver is getting a kick from any sales and you're best to walk around town back in Kusadasi yourself to get better prices. There are rugs in town as well. Beware you don't get cotton for silk as I couldn't tell the difference the cotton was so nice and soft.

Not the most spectacular part of the city, but anywhere other than Ephesus this would be very good, it's just there is so much to see in the Ancient City.
