    "Ephesus Day Tour from Istanbul"
    A short but lovely trip to ephesus. It took our whole day from 4 am to 9 pm but we enjoyed every minute we spent in ephesus. The celcus library, theatre, walking on the marble road was just amazing. amazing. You can definitely feel the atmosphere of Roman Empire. There was so much history and we had a superb knowledgeable guide contributing a lot to our trip. I wish we had more time but next time we will come and enjoy more. Appreciate the efforts of everybody making this trip amazing for us.
