The City of Selçuk: Not Only the Gateway to Ephese, Turkey


Selçuk, a worth seeing small town near Ephese, Turkey.

Selçuk is a town near Ephesus (Efes) on the Aegean Turkish coast. We stayed here for 4 days, it was our headquarter for the trips to Efes, Priene, Milet, Didyma, Pamukkale and Sirince. There are many good buys in the charming boutiques and colorful bazaars situated in the picturesque narrow, winding streets of the town. We had few time left, and only visit the Archeological Museum and the town itself.

In fact, we preferred to stay near the pool of our hotel to relax and refresh ourselves, because we were too exhausted by our trips. So, we never had to the courage to climb on the hill to visit the Citadel of Ayasoluk, to take another expensive taxi to see the house of Virgin Mary and to pay a visit to the Basilica of saint John, to the Isa Bey Mosque and to the Turkish baths Museum. I really appreciated the rural atmosphere of this quiet little city, not too spoiled by the tourism .
