Situated among the Mediterranean olive trees and pine trees, Ephesus will immerse you in the world of ancient Turkey. In this exceptional region, exploring ancestral treasures is a real pleasure! I am generally not very drawn to archaeological sites because I have often been disappointed, but I revised my position after this visit. I was impressed by the size of the place and the preservation of the relics! Moreover, the site has many explanatory boards, which makes it accessible to the public.
Colonnades, temples, statues, and public spaces bear witness to centuries of history... But it is the Library of Celsus that especially causes you to daydream. In the space of a few moments, you start to drift back through the centuries. Like many others, amuse yourself by singing a little song on the stage of the Greco-Roman Great Theatre of Ephesus to try out the echo. The novelty is always there!
Ephesus really deserves a visit during your stay in Turkey. However, one drawback is that the "souvenir" sellers at the exit of the site do not want to let you slip through their net and can be very tenacious. A piece of advice: run away!
