Fethiye Boat Cruise

perm-poon-sub-boat-tripsFethiye Boat Cruise The major reason for visiting Kusadasi: eyeballing the vast ruins of Ephesus, the ancient Greek city. Kusadasi became a major port — claiming 250,000 residents during the 2nd and 3rd centuries A.D. — in the Roman Empire. About 27-square-miles of awesome, excavated Boat Rental Turkey ruins lure visitors past houses, shops, a tavern, a bordello, columns, and even to the toilets, whose rows of cutouts in long marble slabs above mosaic floors provided businessmen places to socialize.

The iconic façade of the library of Celsus, completed about 125 A.D., displays intricately carved columns and pediments. The library could store 12,000 papyrus scrolls in niches, read through slots. Despite earlier destruction, it was rebuilt in the 20th century. A Jewish menorah carved into one of the library’s steps attests to a Jewish community’s existence. Boat Trips From Kusadasi

The more recently excavated, multi-level, Terrace Houses — dating from the 1st century B.C. — demonstrate how wealthy Ephesians lived in homes decorated with mosaics and vivid frescoes. The Ephesus Museum showcases statues of leaders and 50,000 works, including medical instruments and jewelry.

Kusadasi is a resort town for locals, and repeat visitors will find much of interest beyond Ephesus. The port, Scala Nuova, is right in town. Archaeology addicts find other excavated sites close by as well. Christian and Muslim pilgrims flock to the stone house where many believe the Virgin Mary stayed. You can also visit the Basilica of St. John, where the saint is buried. Fethiye Boat Cruise

The Ephesus Half Day Tours contest is a good-natured way to highlight worthy travel destinations. While I appreciate the splendor and beauty of natural wonders, I do hope the winner celebrates the wonders of human ingenuity and craftsmanship.
