I will be traveling with about 25 graduate business students (ages about 23-24) for a one night to visit Ephesus, etc. Any recommendation on where to stay? I am considering Kusadasi and Selcuck. We will be traveling in January (3rd?). I want to make sure that there will be shops/restaurants nearby for them to visit that evening after our tour. I thought it might be nice to be located near the market in Selcuck but I believe it is only open on Saturday. We will be there on a Friday. Any suggestion would be appreciated! I would love advice on where to stay, any visits we should include, and restaurants that would be interesting for them.
Hi there, we are travelling to Turkey mid may to early June with our 5 and 2 year sons. It will be our first time. We want to do 5 days in Istanbul and then i had thought about flying to Izmir and doing Ephesus with them for a day or so and then stay around the coast there for the remaining 5 days. Will it be boiling hot then? I am conscious that we don't want the kids out in the baking sun at Ephesus and that we will have a buggy with us for our youngest. I know they will more than likely get bored but if i can mix up Ephesus with beach days then it shouldn't be too painful. Both my husband and I have been to Pompeii and i think it is similarly spectacular. What places/towns along the coast would you recommend that has lovely sandy beaches but is not too built up/touristy/filled with cruises. We won't be travelling as part of a tour and we would hire a car at Izmir to get us around.
Thanking you for suggestions in advance.

Hi.. Can you recommend me how to get to Santorini from Ephesus?
We are returning to Ephesus and it will be on Orthodox Easter Sunday. On the last trip we took a dolmus from Kusadasi to Ephesus and wondered if there will be any dolmus on Easter Sunday to rely on for transportation to Ephesus and Selcuk. If not, then I need to make arrangements for private transport. Any other special circumstances that might revolve around being in Ephesus on Easter Sunday? Thanks
We are going to IZMIR on 2/17 by Norwegian cruise Jade. We like to go to Ephesus by bus. I would like to know how to travel from port to the bus station where we can find bus to Selcuk?
Thank you in advance.
I'm going to Ephesus, second time there, but want to do the Terraces Houses this time. Do I buy my ticket at the main Ephesus gate or at the entrance to the Terrace Houses? Thank you
i'm planning to rent a car in Izmir port to go to Ephesus, my questions is is easy to get there? do i need a GPS system in the car , the traffic is hard i have just 6 hours. any suggestions?
We have been to Ephesus twice before with guides- terrific experience. This time we want to go on our own from cruiseport in Kusadasi. I plan to go to ATM in Kusadasi before catching the dolmus, but I am having trouble finding current prices. I think maybe the entrance fee is up to 25TL per person at Ephesus. Can anyone verify this? What is the current entry fee for the Terrace Houses? What is the current rate to take the dolmus from Kusadasi to Ephesus? ( I realize it lets off near the bottom gate) Can I walk from the port to the bus stop to catch the Dolmus to Ephesus or do I need to take a dolmus to get from the port to the Central bus station to catch the Kusadasi-Selcuk dolmus?
I want to have enough TL, but do not want to have alot left over. I believe it is respectful to pay in local currency, but I can't figure out how much and I believe they do not take credit cards, right?
Does anybody know if same-day re-entry is permitted at Ephesus, or would I need to purchase two tickets? I am thinking of going early in the morning, head back into Selcuk mid-day, and then back to Ephesus late afternoon after crowds shrink.
Thank you for any info!
My husband and I plan on touring Ephesus next week. We are staying at a hotel in Selcuk. I've looked in to booking a tour but they are kind of expensive. Can we stroll around on our own and still get the most out of it? Any tips would be most appreciated...
I'll be having my trip by the last week of May and have EPHESUS as my number one of to-see-list. I understand that from Istanbul there is a flight to Izmir which is roughly more than an hour. Would be willing to go there in the morning and back to Istanbul.
1.) From Izmir airport how will i reach to ephesus?
2.) How much is the entrance for the ruins site, mother mary's house and other scenery.
3.) How much is the bus trip from Izmir to Ephesus (Efes) and back.
4.) Is there a scheduled bus trips to Ephesus from Izmir and back?
How far from Cruise Port and time wise to bus station to get bus to Epheus. Lots of people said not safe on buses so would we bebetter to get train. Private tours too expensive and I read somewhere you can hire audio guides very cheap.Can anyone recommend a good restaurant at Selcuk.
What is the best, safe and comfortable, way to get from Istanbul to Ephesus, and back? What tour providers are trusted? Should we plan to spend one night in Ephesus?
There are seven of us, all adults, traveling over new years 2011-12.
Our last stop in Turkey is Ephesus and we want to be sure to have enough liras to visit, with not much left over because converting back is hardly worth it.
Could you please tell me what the current cost is...for the main entrance and also the terrace Houses.
Also plse let me know if we could use euros or US dollars.
