About Kusadasi (Ephesus), Turkey

This charming, picturesque resort where Antony and Cleopatra used to vacation is best known as the port for the ancients ruins of Ephesus - one of the world's most wondrous archaeological sites. Explorations should include such masterpieces as the Great Amphitheatre, where St. Paul addressed the Ephesians, the Library of Celsus, and the temples of Athena and Apollo - all connected by marble streets rutted by the wheels of countless chariots.

What people said about this port:

"...amazing to see the ancient ruins and the house of the virgin mary this was overall our favorite place." in 16 reviews.

"The tour guide was very knowledgeable and clear in presentation." in 22 reviews.

The people were great in Turkey. There are many bargains to be had. Be sure to bargain. Also, I do recommend taking an excursion to Ephesus. It is worth the trip.

This was the highlight stop of the trip--Ephesus! We purchased a shore excursion through CheapCruises & used the voucher they provided, which cut the price in half. It was a wonderful and intimate (6 people) walk through the ancient city & ruins of St John's basilica with our knowledgable guide (Rose, in english; don't remember her proper Turkish name). Lunch was in a large garden outside a carpet shop. Food was excellent and the setting very relaxed. The carpet-making explanation was fascinating and impressive. We were not in the market for a carpet and are happy to say the sales pitch was not high-pressure, even though we were the last cruise ship of the season.

do not book the tour that does not enter the Ephesis ruins. You cannot see anything from the lower gate so it is a waste of time.
