Best 3 Day Travel Destinations In India
Ephesus, located nearly 15 kilometres (nearly 9 miles) from Kusadasi, takes about 30 minutes by taxi at the official rate of 50 Turkish Lira per taxi (US$ 17 for 4 persons, one way). It was the second largest Roman city, after Rome itself; and, possessed the third largest library, the Library of Celsus.
It was because of Ephesus why the cruise ship docked at Kusadasi. And, I was not going to hang around that resort town and not go and see the Temple of Artemis which is renowned as one of the Seven Wonders of the World; or, see the final dwelling place of Mary, the Mother of Jesus, situated on the Bulbul Mountain.
I so vividly remember the car driving up the steep road; for, it was so scary.

There was a huge drop off – it seemed like thousands of feet, on the left side going up; but, it was ever so scenic.
I am so very fortunate to have lived to double the pleasure; for, I was lucky to follow up with a second tour a few years later. Now, there are those who will say and maintain that luck had nothing to do with it; but, rather determination, planning and preparation which includes budgeting.
I might have missed the Basilica of St. John. I just can’t remember at this time. I am just so sorry that I did not chronicle my cruises and document my experiences. Sheer memory wanes with old age.
But, I did not miss the amphitheatre at Ephesus which some believe is its main attraction. I have a photo with me sitting and wearing a black floppy hat. The seating capacity is a whopping 25,000.
