Ephesus Highly Recommended Highly Recommended Highly Recommended : Michelin's recommendations

Ephesus is one of the best preserved cities of the Antique world. Excavation work, which first started here in the 1860s, has uncovered most of its streets and buildings, including its town hall, houses, shops and public latrines. In this dazzling city of white marble, Ephesus shows us what daily life was like during the period of the Greeks and Romans, and such is the magical and eloquent nature of its remains that uninitiated visitors do not need an experienced archaeologist to bring the city to life. To avoid the crowds and the summer heat, it's best to visit the site first thing in the morning.

      Ephesus where is an highlight of any visit to Turkey, one of the well preserved archiological cities of the Roman Empire. The once flourishing ancient port , had 250,000 inhabitants at its peak, was the center of trade and had the world's first bank. Of all the ancient cities in Turkey, Ephesus with it's 5,000 years of history is the best preserved and most visited in all ages. Many VIPs of ancient history like Lydian King Croesus, Alexander the Great, St. Paul , St. John, Virgin Mary walked on
