The biggest nearby tourist attraction is undoubtedly the ancient city of Ephesus, one of Turkey’s principal attractions and a hugely popular day trip from Izmir. Housing the impressive Temple of Artemis, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, Ephesus is widely celebrated as the world’s best-preserved Roman city. It’s also home to the largest collection of Roman ruins in the Eastern Mediterranean, including a remarkably preserved Marble Road and a magnificent 25,000 seat amphitheatre.
