Beware the many tours to the site that effectively waste sightseeing time by including dull shopping stops. Note, too, that the site becomes hot in the afternoon in summer, so most tours visit in the morning, making the site especially crowded before noon. Whenever you visit, take a hat, water and sunscreen. No Frills Ephesus Tours offer half-day and longer excursions with no shopping.

Come, Visit and Discover Ephesus, Turkey — Unesco World Heritage Site.

Located within what was once the estuary of the River Kaystros, Ephesus comprises successive Hellenistic and Roman settlements founded on new locations, which followed the coastline as it retreated westward.

Excavations have revealed grand monuments of the Roman Imperial period including the Library of Celsus and the Great Theatre. Little remains of the famous Temple of Artemis, one of the “Seven Wonders of the World,” which drew pilgrims from all around the Mediterranean.

Since the 5th century, the House of the Virgin Mary, a domed cruciform chapel seven kilometres from Ephesus, became a major place of Christian pilgrimage.

The Ancient City of Ephesus is an outstanding example of a Roman port city, with sea channel and harbour basin.
