Ephesus is outstanding. The most accessible ruins we have ever visited. The views are grand and you are in the midst of history. Only 15% of the ruins are unearthed from the earthquake at destroyed the town. The sea has receded almost 10 km from old Ephesus over the last 2000 years from the river silting over. 240,000 people lived in Ephesus at its peak. Standing in the theatre with it's outstanding acoustics you are amazed by the size. This is a must see.
