Want to pretend you're performing in an ancient amphitheatre? Come to Aphrodisias! Here you will find an ideal layout of a Greco-Roman town. You will see the largest stadium, walk around the pillars, the Temple of Aphrodisias, the theatre, etc. You can walk around freely...More

This place is a lot more wild and rough round the edges than some other sites but that adds to its charm. Aphrodisias is just as good as anywhere else and the stadium is the best I have seen.

Absolutely amazing to see an entire ancient city to be excavated. The size of the city is impressive and the ruins are well preserved. Some of the buildings were rebuild using the original materials that the archaeologists found in the city. And the stadium was...More

Aphrodisias is famous in archeology, and a long walk around this big site soon shows why. We were there in winter, so had the place mostly to ourselves, which adds to the strong atmosphere. Just three of the main attractions are 'world-beaters' in themselves. Near...More

We went to Aphrodisias by ourselves. Did not require a guide, but did need transportation to get there. The guide books were enough for self guided tour at our own pace and comfort.
