Ephesus was one of the most important coastal cities of the ancient Ionian civilization. The traces of the earliest settlement go back to the 10th century BC but the exist ruins offer a chance to witness nine different historical eras including the Classical, Hellenic, Roman and Ottoman.
Ephesus City owes its fame predominantly to the Temple of Artemis (6th Century BC), which was one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. When Alexander the Great entered this city saving it from the Persians, he saw the unfinished Temple of Artemis. He was so impressed with the structure that he offered to finance the rest of its construction on the condition that the temple would be named after him. The Ephesians declined his offer, cleverly arguing that it was not appropriate ‘for one God to build a temple for another.’
The well-preserved conditions of this ancient city mean that Ephesus is still one of the most popular tourist attractions in Turkey.
