A visit to Ephesus is one of the highlights of many people’s visit to western Turkey. I go there several times a year and always see something I have missed previously or now understand better. It is the most popular single attraction for visitors in the whole of Turkey.

Now yet another exciting discovery. Archeologists and forensic experts believe they have identified the skeleton of Cleopatra’s younger sister, murdered more than 2,000 years ago on the orders of the Egyptian queen.

This latest discovery should attract even more people to this ancient site which has been described as one of the best places in the world to see what life was like in Roman times.

And if you want a quiet, shady place for a cool drink or tasty meal (maybe in a tree house) after a hot, dusty few hours at Ephesus, just let me know. I know just the place a couple of miles away in Selçuk; better, cheaper and much more authentic than the tourist outfits close to the site.
