Amazing ruins-Ephesus, Turkey

The best-preserved classical city in the eastern Mediterranean, Ephesus is as close a taste you'll find as to what life was like in Roman times - it was both a great trading city back in its day and a centre for the cult of Cybele, the Anatolian fertility goddess. The impressive Magnesia Gate provides the main entrance to the ancient city, where youll walk along marble streets grooved by chariot wheels and see beautiful temples, porticoes, fountains and frescoes as well as the three-storey Library of Celsus, the Temple of Hadrian, the Odeum, the Fountain of Trajan and the Great Theatre.
