Unfortunately, the guide in Italian does not exist and this discourages many tourists to make this beautiful tour in one of the oldest cities in the world. The magic of the site is universal.

Ephesus is an ancient city, back to the past 2000 years ago

I have never seen such a large preserved ancient city. Ephesus is impressive. Chic library, white marble roads, statues, theaters, etc.
