The Ionian coast of Anatolia, now Turkey, was the home to some of the most important city-states of Ancient Greece. Ephesus was the grandest of them all. Its origins are traced to 1600 BC. It was the home to one of the Seven Wonders of the World, the temple of Artemis.
Entering though the southern gate, we are getting a good feeling of this sprawling city. To our right is the theater-shaped Bouleuterion – the city council meeting place.
Slightly down the street is the Memmius monument. The Governor of Asia, Memmius, built the monument with three statues, depicting himself, his father and his grandfather Dictator Sulla.
Following the Curetes street we pass by the fountain dedicated to Emperor Trojan and then the temple of Hadrian.
Everywhere around us the archeologist are working on restoring the city.
At the end of the Curetes street is the famous Celsus library.
Turning right from the library along the Marble street we reach the ancient theater.
Across the theater is the platform with the view of the street of Arcadius all the way to the ancient Harbor.
At the end, we wish we could spend more time at this famed city of the ancient world – so much more to see!
Greece – land of ancient civilizations, beautiful Byzantine churches and soulful songs.
From the Parthenon to the wonderful islands in the Aegean Sea, the history, splendid country sides and the quaint small towns – Greece is magical.
This travel video will take you to ancient sites, like Olympia, Delphi, Athens’ Acropolis, Constantinople and many more. Come along.
