Touring the Roman Ruins in Ephesus, Turkey


Archaeological enthusiasts will adore the city of Ephesus in Turkey. Ephesus is one of the most traveled to places in Turkey, and it is known for its rich collection of archaeological sites and classical architectural styles. In the Mediterranean, Ephesus gives an interestingly realistic glimpse into Roman life and architecture. The ancient city was marked by beliefs in mythical goddesses and fabulous Roman symbolism, and an Ephesus tour will allow you to gain insight into the manifestations of these beliefs in the buildings and structures that were created during this time period.

 

Turkish holidays in this area will usually consist of daily walking tours of the most notable sites, and there are quite a lot of them. One of the best times of day to travel is in the late afternoon because there are far fewer tourists ambling through the streets. You will also be able to miss the sweltering heat that is often present in this part of the country. You can visit the city year round, but you will often find the best prices on hotels in Ephesus during the off-season.
