About Shore Excursions Ephesus
The ancient city was one of the most important commercial cities in the ancient world and it is still one of the most important cities such as Miletos, Smyrna (İzmir) and Pergamon in the ancient history. The city had a population estimated to be in the range of 200.000 to 250.000. Ephesus is excavating for more than one hundred years and the remains, which is only %30 excavated, are mostly from the later Roman period.
It was also a cult center attracting thousands of pilgrims for traditional worship of the female, first Cybele, then Artemis and finally the Virgin Mary. Ephesus was also home for the early philosopher Heraclitus.
"As it was customary in ancient times to consult the oracle before any important event, Androclus, the son of Codrus, the legendary King of Athens did this about where to settle or found a settlement. The answer was simple: "at the place which will be indicated by a fish and a wild boar".
What To Know: The site of Ephesus has two main gates. Using the upper gate, located along the road to the House of the Virgin Mary, is recommended. A brief visit to Ephesus requires about an hour and a half of walking in open air, so it is recommended to dress according to the season. Inside the ruins, there are no restrooms, or water stands. Visitors to Ephesus should take the advantage of the facilities located at the main entry gates. Taking pictures and usage of the cameras are permitted, but using a tripod requires a special permission that can be arranged through the Archaeological Museum in Selçuk.
