Ephesus is a wonder of an ancient city, once on the coast and a hub of trade, religion, and scholars it once hosted one of the largest libraries in the region, the Library of Celsus. While scholars made Ephesus their home all around there are religious icons including the home of Saint Mary and the Temple of Artemis. Pamukkale is a wonderful place to relax, warm mineral-rich waters run down the natural occurring stepped pools with the heat of the Mediterranean weather makes it perfectly peaceful.
