Top Backpacking Destinations Ranking: 7/10

The ruins at Ephesus are the remains of an ancient Greek city which now sit on the outskirts of the modern town of Selçuk and prove a true tourist attraction which draw in hoards of visitors on a daily basis.

Rain Time!

Unfortunately, the day i visited coincided with the day British summer time hit Turkey and the rain fell hard! It was still easy to appreciate the amazing spectacle on show at Ephesus though, which has been so well preserved that it allows you to gain a real insight into how life was lived so long ago. I’d recommend getting a guide (human or audio) so you can understand some of the stories that go alongside the ruins on show and how life was lived when Ephesus was a busy, active town in its own right.

You can read the history lesson on any number of sites across the web, so i’ll let the pictures do the talking here. It’s certainly a beautiful place and well worth a visit if you’re travelling in Turkey – Click on the photos for a closer look!
