If you ask me that Does it worth to visit the ancient city of Ephesus?
Ephesus ancient city was the most important commercial center of the western Anatolia in antiquity. After the Pompei in Italy, Ephesus is the second largest open air museum in the world. It was the first ancient city built entirely of marble. The city has one of the biggest theater in Anatolia and Asia Minor, the third biggest library and second largest agora in the world. Also St. Paul lived in there so Ephesus is the one of seven churches of Revelation.
Terrace Houses where the richest Romans used to live inside of slope houses which consist of the breathtaking mozaics on the floors, excellent frescos one walls, one of the first examples of central heating system which dates back to 1C BC.
And also you have a chance to visit;
*House of Virjin Mary which was the shrine in where the mary had spent her last days
*The Temple of Artemis which was the one of the seven wonders of ancient time.
*The Basilica of St. John the Evangelist who was the writer of the Gospel.
All of the this reasons, I think that the ancient city of Ephesus is the most beautiful ancient city in the world.
