Ephesus: Curetes Street

Recommended
A sacred way leading towards the Temple of Artemis, Curetes Street illustrates the paradoxes and refinement of life in the Ancient world. A stroll along it will leave you perplexed, admiring and amused all at the same time, as you come across public latrines, a profusion of steles, an enclosed house, and baths whose inner workings reveal the sophistication of the heating systems in the ancient city. Vast residences embellished with mosaics are testimony to the refined way of life here, while the lines and volumes of its temples, particularly that of Hadrian (117 BC), show a rare elegance.
