Turkey Things to Do: 1,137 reviews and 1,882 photos


Visit Aphrodisias. A wonderful archaeological site that has been excavated over some years now, and which still is being worked on. The site has a very fine museum, some wonderful areas, including a good theatre, pleasing odeon, and very fine gymnnasium. In the distance (on a clear day!)can be seen the snow-topped mountains. A worthy tribute to the archaeologist who worked there for so many years of his life and who is buried there.
A fine site that has many of the excellent qualities that one looks for in a site. It is worthy of re-visiting, as I have, a number of times.

Directions: Aphrodisias lies a couple of hours'drive east of Kusadasi, the port for Ephesus, Didyma, Miletus, Priene, etc.
