The passengers were bussed back to Ephesus to have dinner in the entry court of the Celsus library.

The passengers were bussed back to Ephesus to have dinner in the entry court of the Celsus library. We truly had a joyous evening. This is the highpoint of the trip in many ways.

Don't book with the cruise line they said, but we did it because we were scared of the situation in Turkey. 1 hour at the historical site of Ephesus with a rather poor guiding, followed by over 1 hour carpet sales. Horrible. Sorry.

I'd studied the Library of Celsus in Roman archaeology and always wanted to see it. It's stunning. I was also interested in the impressive Arch beside it, dating from Augustan times. Our guide was clueless about the Arch and offered very little information on it. He'd obviously only studied certain parts of the city/site and didn't know much about a lot of what was actually there. I found that very disappointing. Read Less
