Located in Ephesus along the main street of this important Greece and later a Roman town, this fountain is well presented. I suggest to proceed in the visit of this archeological place with a guide that can tell you everything.

Spend some time here and walk through everything. Unreal how people could do all this in ancient years with the tools they had.

As part of the huge Ephesus complex, the fountains are one of the more interesting parts you will see along your walk down the main ‘street’ of Ephesus. Good luck trying to get a picture of this part of the ruins with all the tourist groups walking through the area.

When we visited Ephesus a while back we past these ruins of Trajan Fountain, back in Ancient Rome it must have been beautiful.

This is part of the attraction when you visit Ephesus in Turkey. I suggest that you read up about this before you go and visit. The views of the ruin was breathtaking and there is a lot of history behind it is amazing. A must see when in Ephesus, which in itself was excellent.

I took the train from Basmani to Selcuk and then a little bus to Ephesus - what a day exploring this ancient city. This fountain is part of the incredible discoveries - take an audio guide so as to get all the information to make this outing one you will never forget.

This is a one of the place still alive till nowadays. This is very big place and should wear a sports shoes. The library , arena and Trajan is the famous of Ephesus. Mostly one day trip is enough after that can go to the Virgin Mary house by taxi.

One of many partially put together buildings in efeus. Built up of the rubble and remains of the city at best guess and with other Roman architecture as model.

Trajan, one of the intelligents Roman emperors who reigned in late 1st and early 2nd centuries AD, has been all over the Roman empire and the inhabitants of different nations made temples for him but Ephesians constructed a monumental fountain like Trevi in Ephesus for the emperor Trajan.
