treasures of Ephesus terrace houses mosaics roman carpets with a private tour


The history itself is a treasure in Ephesus. Ephesus' greatest claim to fame was its temple to the goddess Artemis. One of the seven wonders of the ancient world, it was almost four times larger than the Parthenon in Athens. According to the New Testament, the Apostle Paul preached in Ephesus, prompting a riot led by silversmiths who crafted shrines to the goddess and feared for both their livelihoods and the future of the temple.

The city is so well preserved that it is almost like a snapshot in time. You get the sense of what walking down the street of a Roman city was like without having to use your own imagination.
