Join us on an unforgettable journey through the awe-inspiring Temple of Domitian, an architectural marvel that has withstood the test of time. We’ll stop by the graceful Fountain of Traianus, the Baths of Varius, and the majestic Temple of Hadrian, each a testament to the city’s grandeur. And, of course, we’ll marvel at the Library of Celsus, an iconic structure that continues to captivate visitors with its elegance.Our exploration will lead us to the sacred Church of Mother Mary, a place of profound spirituality and significance. The historical significance of this site is immeasurable. In the figure of Artemis, deeply revered and cherished, we find a divine representation of sublime femininity. To quote Walter Friedrich Otto in “The Homeric Gods,” this eternal image embodies the piously intuitive spirit’s perception of divinity.

While the Temple of Artemis may be long gone, the Magnificent Statue of Artemis remains, a true marvel. You can find the authentic piece on display at the Ephesus Museum in Seljuk. Together, we’ll unravel the profound meaning that this statue continues to radiate.

Tips 1Entrance Gates for Ephesus

Enter through the Upper Gate. Ephesus has two entrances: the Upper Gate and the Lower Gate. We recommend starting from the Upper Gate and walking downhill to the Lower Gate, as it allows for a more convenient tour route.

Tips 2Restroom Facilities in Ephesus

Be aware that there are no restroom facilities along the tour route except at the entrance and exit gates. These facilities are three kilometers apart, so plan accordingly to avoid any inconvenience.

Tips 3Terrace Houses in Ephesus

There is an additional fee to enter Terrace Houses II. This fee serves both for site maintenance and to manage visitor numbers as these houses are delicate.

Tips 4MuzeKart Advantage

 If you plan to visit multiple historical sites in Turkey, consider purchasing a MuzeKart. This card, priced at 60 TL, provides access to various attractions, making it a cost-effective choice compared to individual tickets.

Tips 5Before You Visit Ephesus

There are no stores within the ruins, so it’s advisable to ensure you have sufficient water and sun protection before beginning the tour. You can find necessary items at stores near the entrance or at the nearby café. For a more budget-friendly option, consider purchasing your essentials from local stores in the city.
