I really didn't understand the scale of Ephesus. Extensive marble paved streets linking all the different features of this once busy and populated city (some 250,000 at its peak). It has existed from the 10 century BC to 15 century AD when it was abandoned. Visitors can roam fairly freely across the site. Amazing really. Evidently there is much, much more which has not yet been uncovered.
These photos include the famous Celsus Library and the amphitheatre which is vast. (Look closely as there are people in that shot!) I would love to be at a concert here; they apparently happen on the odd occasion.
Our hotel, Ninsayan House, in the hills above, in Sirince, is simple luxury. A bit of a splurge for us and has been something very special.
