  Celcus Library
by Erkmen

A visit to Ephesus is one of the highlights of any visit to Turkey. Probably the best-preserved classical city and perhaps the best place in the world to get the feeling for what life was like in Roman times. The Temple of Artemis, which is one of the Seven Wonders of the World, The Celcus library, Marble Street, Great Theater, wonderful gates, Baths and temples are the highlight of Ephesus.

You should also spare some time to visit the House of Virgin Mary. According to tradition, St. John brought Mary to Ephesus after the death of Christ. A small house was built for her on Mt. Nightingale where she spent the last days of her life. Vatican also officially sanctions the house.
