Landing is right on time at 8 hours and our guide Travel Service Private kusadasi.tv we waited outside the terminal. We had a very comfortable truck and quickly went to Ephesus.
The journey between the port was about 45 minutes. Shopping was available outside the area but had no time for that. A quick stop at the bathroom and walked toward the entrance. Several of our group had been to Ephesus before, 10 years ago.
I could not believe how much had changed. In the 10 years he had dug new and important, including the restoration of town houses, is now available for public inspection for a fee.
I found the history of this fascinating city. Originally a port, the accumulation of sediment resulted in a coastal town. When the Romans who built, scheduled to ditches, aqueducts to bring water and sewer lines to handle wastewater. The bath house was built with running water continuously under the seats. The Bungalows show, the location of the pipes of clay, the houses were heated and hot and cold water.
I was familiar with the library image fantastic, but the front was even more spectacular when seen in person. “Funny story we have heard about a tunnel to be discovered from inside the library to the brothel across the street. And at the end of our trip was the amphitheater of the city is absolutely huge. Visiting this city was a definite highlight.
As expected, there were shops in the end, for collection of buses. Not stay long because we had more on our agenda: a visit to Sirince.
Sirince is a city on the hill in an area known for its wines. We have a nice walk in the mountains with stunning views by all means try. Lunch was at the restaurant Artemis was fantastic. We have included two glasses (I had a glass of white wine and a glass of red wine), snacks, olives, and hummus tzidiki, salad, beef kebabs with rice, grilled peppers and onions, and dessert baklava with ice. Fantastic!
We had the opportunity to tour the town, but that meant walking down a steep hill that would have to go back up again. With the average age of our group in the high 60′s, the vote to pass the tour and return to Kusadasi for the bazaar.
The area of the bazaar outside the harbor is enormous. And the shopping experience was not very pleasant. We practically dragged to the shops with the end of the season -. Special rates “One woman was with, literally had to force him out of a store. We wandered through the streets that had shops mainly footwear, garments, leather jackets and jewelry. Very few souvenir shops and the stores did not sell all the same thing.
After walking just to walk and exercise more, we made our way back across the harbor to the boat. And there were some very nice shops right on the port that is not in the output. We did not have time to stop and buy, so I can not report them, but that seemed, at first glance, a kind of luxury.
