🏛Part IV. A few tips for those who want to visit Ephesus:
🔆 It's better to start sightseeing from the South-East entrance (theater "Odeon"). If you entered there it would be downhill walk through the city. A taxi from Selçuk bus station (Selçuk is a town where Ephesus is based) will take you wherever you want including the South-East entrance. But the local small bus "dolmuş" goes only to the Nort-West entrance (lower entrance)
🔅September, October, April and May is the best time for visiting Ephesus. You would probably agree that slow transformation to a fried chicken doesn't contribute to the immersion in historical atmosphere🍖🔥🌞. And don't count on any shade - there isn't many trees.
It's summer and you are in Ephesus, don't be afraid, follow these kind advice:
🔆Even if you think that after putting on a hat/bandana/ball cap you will look like a weirdo anyway TAKE it with you. About 1 p.m. you will certainly change your mind.
🔆Food, water, clothes cost almost 8-10 times more than in the common places. So if you watch your budget take all you need in advance.
🔆Your shoes should be not only comfortable for you feet but also with non-slipping soles. There is a long marble road (maybe not so long but you wouldn't like to break your arm on that marble thing, right?).
🔆Start your trip through Ephesus early in the morning (it opens at 8 a.m.) or after 5 p.m. Heatwave, you remember?
🔆After visiting Ephesus we decided to go to the nearest beach in order to stop our slow transformation into some fried chickens. So you should know that all "the nearest beaches" to Ephesus are....lets say they're just awful places with dirty water. Choose only proven options👌🏿
And of course, enjoy your time in Ephesus!😉😊🏛 #a_little_about_turkey
