Touring In One Of The Seven Wonders Of The World – Ephesus Turkey-519697

Arts-and-Entertainment Tourism in Ephesus is chiefly archaeological but those who visit do so not only out of scholarly taste but because the beauty of this ancient city and it remaining structures is indeed hauntingly beautiful. The ruins are all that is left of an empire whose legends were once sung by the greatest of poets. The city has been in Greek as well as Roman hands and it’s architectural marvels have come to symbolize the unique Greco-roman style of the ancient era. Located at a walkable distance from Seluk, Ephesus receives flocks of tourists throughout the year. Private Ephesus tours for tourists are organized for half day or few hours and sometimes full day. Since the ancient city is fairly small and can be covered in just a few hours even, spending an entire day in Ephesus wouldn’t be necessary. Buses, minibuses and private taxies offer the service of transportation from Istanbul, Seluk, etc to Ephesus and also take tourists back to Istanbul or other locations. It is always best to hire a professional, reliable and authentic guide along with an experienced guide so there is no transportation hassle since it is almost impossible finding accommodation in Ephesus due to unavailability of hotels there. However, the city is well stocked with eating spots that serve some of the best Turkish cuisine along with global inclusions on the menu. Private Ephesus tours for tourists usually include the service of transportation so travelers won’t have to walk all the way to the Artemis Temple which is located nearby the now Seluk. However, it is only a few minutes’ walk away so while one is enjoying the excursion, taking a walk to the temple and the Seluk Castle would be a better idea to explore the surrounding and en route structures. The key sites of the city are the Library of Celsus (among the biggest libraries of the ancient world), the temple of Artemis (Ancient’s world wonder), the terrace houses (Ephesus city’s residence of the rich), Market Agora (city’s biggest commercial center located close to the harbor), Great Theatre of the Greco-Roman world (had a seating capacity of almost 24,000-25,000), Odeon (the indoor theatre made in a semi-circular shape), Harbor Avenue (City’s longest street), etc. Some structure lie within the city gates while the Artemis Temple is located a few kilometers far, nearby the Seluk castle. In fact, the population lived around the Artemis Temple but when the Romans conquered the city, the population shifted to the current Ephesus location. Numerous souvenir shops and kebab houses are located in symmetry outside the site so those hungry for some local flavor can enjoy a healthy, hygienic and exotic lunch at the exit area of the site. However, travelers should remember to not purchase any carpets or leather from the souvenir shops as they may be low in quality and Istanbul and Seluk offer a better range of souvenirs for a far more extensive budget range.
