First things, first. Go back and read Wednesday’s post on Turkish Black Eyed Pea Salad!

Okay, now that you’re up-to-date on my time in Istanbul, let’s talk about Ephesus and Kusadasi.

These ruins are old. Like, 10th century BCE old!

In one expansive site, you can see everything from 3,000 year old pottery to the beautiful Library of Celsus (above), circa 135 CE.

Ruins at Ephesus

This amphitheater is believed to be where St. Paul preached the Ephesians.

There’s some seriously cool stuff to see in the ruins at Ephesus, but I feel like it just doesn’t get any love.

Everyone goes to see the Acropolis of Athens, Petra of Jordan, the Colosseum of Rome, etc., etc.

I mean, this place was THE place to be back in the day. This is where the Temple of Artemis once stood, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World.

All that’s left now is this reconstructed column which identifies the site for passersby:

Temple of Artemis

If you ever have a chance to explore these ruins, TAKE IT! I’ve seen my share of ruins around the world, and this site was by far my favorite.

After a long day of exploring, head into the port town of Kusadasi and grab a table at one of the seaside restaurants. Order freshly caught fish and a spread of mezes.
