Ephesus - historical city in Turkey

One thing is clear - all pictures are taken by my daughter Kim or her boy - friend Fred !!
I just allow myself to report this pictures because i went to this city myself - with my daughter Kim in 1996 ! I was used that time to video - not photographing.
Fred allowed me to use this pictures for VT - because it was beautiful and interesting to report on Turkey historical cities !

Let me invite you to see and enjoy :

- The Heracles gate
- The Basilica

    Wonderful that Kim revisited for you. Fabulous...truely romantic. I am fascinated by these ruins. I wouldn't want to be at the 'right' of those toilets... ughh.:-)

    So much history here Luc! Those ancient Roman ruins are so impressive and amazingly long-lasting! Great shot of those stone arches still standing at Hierapolis!!

    Great page, Luc. I was lucky to visit Ephesus a few years ago but I did not remember of the public toilets ! They are in better condition than the one in Dougga, Tunisia !
