Ephesus had its best periods during the Hellenistic and Roman eras, and as the capital of the Asian province and a big port, its population was of 200,000 habitants. The Celsus’ library is one of the most impressive ancient constructions that you will ever see and strolling in these streets will make you feel like a roman yourself.
