Ancient City of Aphrodisias with a private guide


Aphrodisias was a small Greek city in the province of Caria. Current ancient city if located nearby the village of Geyre. It takes approx. 2. 5 hours drive (140 miles) from Kusadasi to reach Aphrodisias. Aphrodisias, unlike Ephesus has never been a port city. The city is 62 miles inland from the coast.
Unlike many other ancient cities in Anatolia, Aphrodisias
was discovered by a famous Turkish photographer Mr. Ara Guler in 1958. He was travelling through villages and towns. He was in the village of Geyre and noted a village that has so many ancient remains that the villagers live without knowing their importances. Afterwards Ara Guler was in touch with the Turkish Archaeologist Mr. Kenan Erim from New York University. Excavations began in 1960s. Kenan Erim devtoted his life to excavate this ancient city. Since this city is lately discovered, you do not see any remains from this city in British Museum or any other museum outside Turkey.
