I saw it on internet before the planned travel but I felt totally amazed upon reaching the ruins of Ephesus. It was sooo surreal, I thought I was dreaming and was transported back to the time when Gods and Goddesses of Roman Mythology mingle with human beings..it was a roman ancient city with marble floors and brick roads that houses the temples of gods and goddesses, an enormous library and a greek amphitheatre... On the way to the House of Mary which comes first on our itinerary after our tourist guide fetched us from Izmir Airport (1 hr flying time from Istanbul) is really a breather. the mountains are verdant and the aegean sea makes the place very calm and serene. Hundreds of tourists are already inside the House of Mary when we arrived but everyone really seems so respectful of the sacredness of the place...If you want to make a special prayer, you can post it in the prayer wall and if you are a catholic, bring an empty bottle so you can collect the water fr the faucet allegedly from a spring and believed to be miraculous.
