Ephesus is a fabulous place to explore and well worth the trip when you are staying on the Bozburun Peninsula in our luxurious villas with private pools.
The site is vast and really needs at least a morning to explore it fully. The separate area that is being restored is certainly worth the extra fee payable at the entrance.
The roads around Mugla are now much better so for most of the journey you will be travelling on a dual carriageway.
Although some of our guests have explored Ephesus in one day we recommend that you take it easy and stay overnight allowing you to have an easy journey up to Ephesus and then explore it the following morning on the way back.
Please contact us if you want us to recommend a suitable hotel near Ephesus or if you want us to arrange a local partner to take you.
