Turkey, Part II: Ephesus and Other Ruins
With just a short amount of time in Turkey, we really only had time to visit one place other than Istanbul. We had debated between Cappadocia and Ephesus, but in the end decided on Ephesus since it seemed the weather would be a bit nicer. That, and one of us hadn’t seen too many Roman ruins, so it sounded pretty interesting.
Without thinking it through too much, we planned for three whole days in Selçuk (just near Ephesus) so we had time to see more than we had originally thought. We ended up spending a day at Ephesus with the evening in Kuşadası, a day visiting the village of Sirince, and a day taking a road trip (we rented a car, yay!) visiting various ruins along the way and ending at the coastal town of Güllük.
