... so. Cheesy Ephesians and gladiators would walk out, pretend to fight, and then leave. I never went over to watch up close, but it turned out to be great because all the tours would leave the amphitheater to go see the performance. It was great to have the ruin pretty much to ourselves :)
Turning left out of the theater, we hiked up Curetes Street, the central street in the ruin. It took us forever to find the end of the road -- ...
So we had a long drive day today in the heat which also meant we needed to entertain ourselves. I had moved around at one of the stops and decided it would be a good idea to sit sideways in my seat. Turns out Will needed to stop quite suddenly and that meant I went flying forwards and got twisted at the foot of my seat and something went crack in my knee. Not a fun way to spend the day, as now I have a gammy foot and knee, brilliant.
... 1800s who was searching for its lost treasures. Out the front there was a genuine fake (a term used all over turkey) wooden horse. To make the site even worse constrction works were happening and utes where parked everywhere ruining any chance of a good photo op.
Troy wasn't too far from Galliploi but we settled in for another 3hr drive to the Arcopolis, an ancient city on top of a mountain. We needed a cable car to the top and the ...
... Hadrian’s Villa. Some of us paid the 15 Lira extra to visit inside a covered compound that protects excavations of the wealthy terrace houses that have some very well preserved mosaics and artwork. Huge houses and so close together. Just boggles my mind to think I am walking on the same ground/paths of those who lived here thousands of years ago and to wonder what their life was like and what they would think of us today.
After the Ephesus tour, we had the ...
... At that very moment the sun set behind a mountain. This long day was over.
Who knows how much of our own civilization will be still standing in two thousand years from now?
We had a great time exploring Ephesus in the hot sun! It was one of the best archeological sites that we've visited! Once you set foot into Ephesus, you feel as you have time traveled back into time, a time when gladiators and Caesars ruled the earth!

Historical Traveler Reviews Aquafantasy Aquapark Hotel & SPA Selcuk
Loved Every Bit Of It.
Best hotel ever. Fell in love with the people, the food, the pools.
The waterpark is fantastic, easy access and great for kids.
I loved the entertainment and animation activities. Spent a lot of time playing darts and water polo!
LOVE the staff there, they are so friendly and fun.
The food is good. Has special kiddie food and then turkish food for you to try out too.
Wednesday night is Turkish night which is awesome. Everyone wears red and white and the food is all turkish and the show is Turkish folklore.
The best night was the beach Party. Everyones on the beach around the bonfire dancing. Great atmosphere.
Really hope i can go back next year. It is the best hotel EVER.
Myself the hubby and 3 kids aged 15, 12 and 6 went for a two week all inclusive.
We have just returned from the Aqua Fantasy and had a fantastic holiday, rooms were clean, we did wake up one morning to a few ants in the room but as soon as we informed reception they sorted it and were very helpful the only downside was we found the tiles very slippery if they were wet so our little one had a couple of bumps on the head after getting out the bath, but that is all i can think that was bad, the cleaner was excellent, they all work so hard out there and have always got a smile for you.
Having just come home from the aqua fantasy i find reading other reviews strange , We have nothing but good reports to give. I went with my three teenage girls and my partner, on entering the hotel we were impressed with the cleanliness of the foyer/reception, throughout the entire two weeks we were amazed at how hard the staff worked , continually cleaning even washing the forecourt outside everyday.
Went to Aquafantasy in July temp was about 40 degrees.
Pools: excellent (2 large outdoor pools and 1 indoor pool on Hotel grounds), however there were not enough sunbeds to please all guests. We went to the aquapark which had also sunbeds but then you don't have the drinks and food which were only free on Hotel grounds. You had to walk 5 minutes to the Hotel but were not allowed to take drinks or food back to aquapark.
Loved the place
just returned from aqua fantasy had the best all inc holiday yet, the food was good had a kids buffet as well, the staff were very friendly, the rooms were clean, the pools were cleaned every night, it was a very clean place .The water park was fantastic my kids loved it and so did us parents. the slash card was also a good idea ,meant you didnt have to carry money about with you all the time, shop on complex very dear, nightly entertainment could of been better lot of the same, look out for marco one of entertainers does shooting and bowls lovely guy very funny. went to night club a few times it was ok seemed to play same records all the time. Overall had an excellent time would go back , if you do go take euros as every thing is marked in euros.
Certainly the best Mediterranean vacation I've ever had. The staff was very friendly, and the management was always trying to make things better. Prior to our trip we had concerns about the hygiene issues because the hotel is in Turkey but to be honest the cleanness of the hotel was one of the best I've ever been, including many of the 5 stars I've been throughout Western Europe and the States. Especially the daily cleaning of the kitchen and dining facilities were impressive. The only problem to me was the see weeds at the beach, but again the hotel management was working hard to clean the beach from see weeds.
fantastic hotel it only opend in may 2004, the rooms are big light and modern, air condition works well, plenty of space for your clothes and stuff. the water park the kids loved, its right on the door step so they could come and go as they liked. although we went in october and not all the slides were open at the same time due to not enough staff. the food was good for turkey hotels but by no means 5* remember you are in turkey if you want roast beef and yourkshire pud go to blackpool or benidorm.
