Our fascinating Turkey tour continues; we are now in Kusadasi, staying at the charming Kismet hotel. The bouganvilles with their vibrant colour mesmerise us.
And here we are at the fascinating ancient city of Ephesus, what a sight. After Rome, Ephesus was the most populated city during the Roman Empire, with a population of 250,000 people. The scope of the ancient city is mind blowing. This is the Domitian Temple at the city of Ephesus, dedicated to the Emperor Domitious, whose was not much loved – and therefore the Ephesians turned the temple to a shopping arcade after he passed away!
This is the Curetes Street, the former processional way of about 210m long. This prestigious boulevard would lead up to the famous library and paved with precious marbles and statues at both sides.
And the landmark of Ephesus, the famous, beautiful library. The library was built as a monumental tomb, dedicated to the marshall Selsus, and it is the 3rd largest library in antiquity; simply breathtaking.
And here we are all congregated by the library as a group:)
Let me finish off with a fascinating view of the Kusadasi Bay, the Aegean sea is so inviting, mesmerising view:)
