Efes Antik Kenti Tiyatrosu, Selcuk

4.9
With the original seating capacity of 25,000, Efes Antik Kenti Tiyatrosu remains the largest structure of Ephesus and the first major landmark when entering from the lower gate. Constructed in the 3rd century BCE and restored under the Romans, this impressive amphitheater with flawless acoustics still hosts open-air concerts of contemporary artists, such as Sting and Elton John. With a little bit of imagination, you could picture St. Paul preaching Christianity to the Ephesians worshiping the Goddess Diana. The Arcadian Way is a great place to stop by and snap some photos of the amphitheater. To visit Efes Antik Kenti Tiyatrosu on your trip to Selcuk, use our Selcuk online trip maker .

  • The theater impresses with its capacity, but the preservation does not shine. In the sense there are theatres over which archeologists-restorers worked more. There's nothing inside. I hope the financing will continue, because the flow of tourists here does not weaken. And it's fine in every sense.

  • Huge Roman amphitheatre also known in the Acts of the Apostles in which Sampaolo was opposed by the sellers of statuettes of Artemis. With its imposing terraces could have welcomed an audience of more than 20000 people. Too bad it is not very cared in fact thrive too many weeds bushes.
