Is the shuttle from the cruise ship or from the port area?


You could see a lot of it in that time & if it is hot it may be enough time to spend in the hot sun

Actually, the best way to see Ephesus is to take one of the ship's excursions. Don't forget that the price of the excursion includes your transportation, your admissions, and the services of an English-speaking guide. In my experience, the guides are generally quite knowledgeable.

Do you have a link for the shuttle service?

Thanks

If you go on your own remember you need turkish currency for the Terrace Houses, they don't take Euros.

Default Private tour cheaper than the tour offered by the cruise ship

Ephesus was our favorite port of call. Our guide was extremely courteous, knowledgeable about everything from antiquities, to agriculture, and even funny the tour is much less expensive than the ship offerings and far superior in terms of attention. We had an excellent Ephesus tours with Private DMC tour company this is the web site ephesustoursguide.com I would definitely recommend...

Touring the Terrace Houses was the the highlight of our visit to Ephesus. It was easy to imagine what life must have been like so many years ago for these wealthy Ephesians. And you can catch glimpses of what they really looked like! It was also interesting watching some of the restoration/ excavation that is ongoing.
