Ephesus, Turkey is a well-preserved ancient port city, used by both the Greeks and Romans. Some of the must see sites here include the Temple of Artemis, House of Virgin Mary, Library of Celsus (pictured) and Basilica of St. John. The Libaray of Celsus was built in 117 AD and is one of the most famous structures in this ancient city. It was used as a monumental tomb for Gaius Julius Celsus Polemaeanus, the governor of the province of Asia; from his son Galius Julius Aquila. Visit beautiful Ephesus by way of the Port of Kusadasi, and enjoy ancient sites that will fill up your camera roll.
