Coming down from Mt. Koressos, I headed to Ephesus.

The ancient city of Ephesus, located near the Aegean Sea in modern day Turkey, was one of the great cities of the Greeks in Asia Minor and home to the Temple of Artemis, one of the Seven Wonders of the World. The ruins of Ephesus are a major tourist attraction, especially for travelers on Mediterranean cruises.
