A perfect example of an Ancient amphitheatre, built in 300BC, so predating the Romans involvement in the area before they eventual put their own spin on it. The signature attraction of Ephesus and a must see. Take time to climb to the top and see...More

This theater is huge. It is an amazing piece of architecture, especially when you consider when it was built. The seating capacity alone is amazing. The theater if fairly well preserved. It is a must see attraction.
