Efes is a must visit place in turkey. We stayed in Izmir and took the train to Selcuk which costed us 1/3 as compared to the tour being offered in the hotel

As part of Ephesus/Efes complex (city) this is a landmark structure. Try to stop in a (shady) corner and just close your eyes and contemplate all the history ... the people who went by ... what a time it was ... lyrical, almost!

This one is the fountain of Trajan (AD 98-117) dedicated to Roman Emperor who was father of Hadrian (117-138).. This is only one of the structures restored. You can see similar ones around ....

Problematic arrangements of the found pieces of the historical constructions. The arrangement is not proportional but the place is very nice.

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.
