It took us 1 hour walk from the city centre of Selcuk to Ephesus. Ephesus is an ancient city in Turkey’s Central Aegean region, near Selcuk. Its excavated remains reflect centuries of history, from classical Greece to the Roman Empire. When it was the Mediterrancean’s main commercial center to the spread of Christianity.
This is a must see -the type of place to visit. The excavation is continuously happening while visiting, we are able to see the archaeological digs occurring. It is a massive site with incredible intact old remains of the ancient buildings and city.
We reached Ephesus in the late afternoon with hot sunny weather. It is quite a long walk and lucky we are well prepared and bought some water bottles with us. The best time to visit this place is early in the morning with less tourists and not as hot and humid as the afternoon.
After spend 2 to 3 hours at Ephesus, we took a bus to the seaside resort to escape the blistering sun. We didn’t want to visit the house where the Virgin Mary is believed to have lived in Southwest of Selcuk as it is too hot for more sightseeing.
