Ephesus

Ephesus — one of the most important cities of the Roman Empire — is among the world's best ancient sites. Whether you're strolling its broad boulevards, appreciating the pillared facade of the famous Library of Celsus, peeling back the layers of dust to understand the everyday lifestyles of the rich and Roman at the Terrace Houses, or testing the acoustics in the theater where the Apostle Paul once spoke, Ephesus is a perfect place to time-travel back to the grandeur of Rome. Even those who don't like ruins are turned on by Ephesus' ancient landscape and visible history.
