I have now ticked off another wonder of the world by seeing Ephesus. I realize that it completely depends on which list you look at as to whether or not it is included as one of the wonders, but personally, I would like to see all the items on all of the lists, so I am counting Ephesus!
One of the closest towns to stay in is Selcuk. …
... goddess of love. Again, all the primary features of a Roman city. The agora, or town square or forum, was over two hundred metres long, and beside it they had built a second agora that featured a pool, also two hundred metres long, surrounded by colonnades. Must have been an extraordinary feature in its day. The museum had dozens and dozens of marble statues, most missing two arms, sundry legs, and heads. Again incredibly rich statuary. The museum had hundreds of friezes on ...

Notice the photo of the sign that points out references to the Virgin Mary in the Koran.
The scenery surrounding the house is also very nice. Several of us were able to enjoy some coffee and purchase some souvenirs.

TravelPod Member ReviewsTuncay Pension Selcuk
The pension was fine for a few nights. It was in a great location. The owner was not particularly helpful, and was a bit rude. The bathrooms were not very clean and never had toilet paper. The nights were very cold and the blankets are really thin.... if you visit and it is not summer, I would bring a sleeping bag. I was jealous of those that had them!
