Ancient Ephesus is located on the Aegean coast of Western Anatolia, at a distance of 270 kilometers from the city of Fethiye.
The ancient city of Ephesus is a huge open-air museum. Ephesus was founded between the sixteenth and eleventh centuries BC as an Ionic colony of Ionian Greeks from Athens.
Since then, many important sights of Ephesus have been preserved. Here you can see the ruins of the Temple of the goddess Artemis – one of the seven wonders of the Ancient World and the symbol of Ephesus.
