The world famous Ephesus one of the most important ruins of Roman times, including the Temple of Artemis, the Celsius library, the Basilica of St. John and the House of the Virgin Mary are only an hour and a half from Alacati. 2000 years ago Ephesus was the capital of the Roman province of Asia and the largest city of the Empire after Rome. Along its arteries circulated a packed crowd dressed in togas. Aujourd'jui between pavers and decapitated statues grow wildflowers. Ephesus yet retains some of the most remarkable Roman structures in the world. The ruins of temples and markets succeed those of thermal baths and latrines. An etched keypad, held to be the oldest advertising world, indicates the direction of the nearest brothel. Whole program ... Here also stands high colonnaded façade of the Library of Celsus, where 12,000 rolls were stored. Can Arman, historian at the Ephesus Museum, walks in the steps of the Grand Theatre, which could accommodate 25,000 spectators at gladiatorial combat. In general, the population of the Roman cities was ten times greater than the capacity of their theaters, he said. The Ephesus site is open daily from 8 am (entry € 9.50 and € 7 extra for access to terrace houses). The Ephesus Museum is located in Selcuk (2.40 €).
