Ephesus (or Efes in Turkish) was an ancient Greek city on the west coast of Anatolia, near present-day Selçuk, İzmir Province, Turkey. It was one of the twelve cities of the Ionian league during the Classical Greek era. In the Roman period, it was for many years the second largest city of the Roman Empire; ranking behind Rome, the empire's capital. Ephesus had a population of more than 250, 000 in the 1st century BC, which also made it the second largest city in the world. We will pick you up from the airport or your hotel and drive to Ephesus, the veritable cradle of early Christianity and see the spectacular ruins from the period of St. Paul, some of which only been excavated recently.
