This is absolutely huge and amazingly well preserved. It could hold up to 25000 people back in the day. You can go to the stage and pretty far up in the bleachers. It maybe the most spectacular spot in whole of Ephesus.

This is such a well-preserved theatre. It is overwhelming and also quite educational. It is amazing to visit somewhere where the Apostle Paul also was located and to be able to contextualize the Bible. Such a great experience.

Excellent. It's located inside Ephesus and it's really big. You can make a sound and realize how nice the acoustic is

It is worth to walk around all levels and angles. Step on the stage area and have someone take you a pic from one of the seats in front. Really cool

Probably the grandest theatre I have seen and in one of the most suggestive settings: the great hill behind and the long Roman road in front...would have been breathtaking when the port was at the end of road. Going up is not for the faint...More
