Wonderful for me, as I just revisited places from my earlier time of living there.

Don't buy sweets or souvenirs when arriving at Ephesus. Wait till you leave the archaeological site at shop at the market area at exit and coach park

The ruins of Ephisis were more than I ever expected. needed more time at this site.


I was blown away by the ruins at Ephesus. I had never really heard of the site before, but I have since been inspired to learn all about it. Fanstastic set of ruins and history to visit. Skip the House of the Virgin Mary. It's crowded, requires a long wait, and doesn't include anything worth seeing.
