You will also see Grand Theater of Ephesus where Paul and many others preached and which has capacity of 24.000 people, Temple of Hadrian (legendary Emperor Hadrian visited old Ephesus once), Latrines (also know as ‘’toilets) which show us a glimpse of daily life in Ancient Ephesus.
Terrace Houses of Ephesus
The richest of the Ephesians used to live in the center of the city. Today seven of the old Roman villas are still visible and open for you to see. We will be visiting Terrace Houses in Ephesus during our walk through ancient city. Terrace Houses show some of the best frescos and mosaics works.
Temple of Artemis (A.K.A. Temple of Diana)
Today temple does not have a lot left from its old beauty. Temple was destroyed by ‘’Herosdotus’’ in fourth century B.C. and could never regain its glory. A single column left from the temple still gives us an idea about its original look.
