Ephesus - the greatest Greco-Roman site in the world
Of all Turkey’s Lycian Coast’s many ancient marvels, Ephesus stakes a strong claim to be the most magnificent. Even Croesus was envious of this place, and touring the ruins, the glory of the ancient city remains evident. Once home to one of the World’s Seven Wonders – the Temple of Artemis – the finest remains are now the Great Theatre and the Library of Celsus. Sit high up in the theatre and look down at what is said to be the classical world’s largest outdoor theatre, an incredible sight, only rivalled by the library’s beautiful façade. The imposing, Corinthian-columned face is as fine an example of Roman public architecture as you’ll find anywhere.
