The ancient ruins of Ephesus are amazing to behold. Many are still in tact, if not partially restored. It's easy to imagine what life might have been like in the once Greek, then Roman (second in size to Rome) city in the 1st century BC. It is believed that it is one of the seven churches of Asia referenced in Revelations and that the Gospel of John may have been written here. Additionally, it is also the site of a major gladiator graveyard! All very fascinating.
