Ephesus was an ancient town in Asia Minor, now Turkey. It was one of the twelve Ionian cities located on the Aegean Sea. It was an important religious, cultural and commercial centre. Its ruins are now a major tourist attraction, visited mostly by cruise ships coming from the port of Kusadasi 20 km away.
It is a comprehensive site that has not yet been fully excavated, but what can be observed gives some idea of its original splendour.
