Selcuk Travel Guide: 339 reviews and 945 photos

Selcuk is a nice place: Ephesus, St. John Basilica, bus station in a walking distance from every hotel, many places to dine out,so it's small and convenient. Beaches are in 15 min ride on a mini-van distance. Also every Saturday and Wednesday it a shopping paradise, you can buy everything very cheap if you know how to bargain. I bought very cool tablecloth (cotton 100%) for 30$, the sale person asked for 50$. My child bought a lot of stuff also. You can buy a lot of tasteful fruit and vegetables also, since Saturday is a farm market day. All this stuff is organic and taste so gooooooooooood! We stayed 4 nights there and enjoyed it very much!

Cleopatra again

Our guide said this mosaic is the oldest in Ephesus.Our guide said this mosaic is the oldest in Ephesus. It’s next to the sarcophagus of Cleopatra’s sister. This cruel woman killed all her folks in order to became a queen , her life still was not perfect ,but l like her, the little ugly Jewish conqueror.She built some Egyptian buildings in Ephesus too, devoted to her Gods of course. That’s way some columns looks so much different from Greek or Roman ones.

Christian spot

Christians were prosecuted in Ephesus, so they have there secret symbol (the one in the picture) that showed that in this particular the area there were a Christian community!
