Enjoy a Private Tour of Selçuk and Be Amazed by Its Vibrancy and Ruins
When you take a private tour to Selçuk, you will be amazed at the vibrancy of the city and the ancient ruins there are to see here.
It would not be wrong to say most people think of the ancient ruins of Ephesus when you mention Selçuk but that is unfair on this town as it has more to offer any tourist.
One of the pretty impressive sights to see as you approach Selçuk is the ancient fortress on Ayasoluk Hill that looks down over the town. It was this fortress that was built to protect the Basilica of Saint John.
The fortified walls are mainly from the Seljuk and Ottoman periods and within the fortress there are 15 towers and grand gates to the west and east of the fortress. There is much to see here and well worth a visit.
Another interesting thing about Selcuk is that there is a Roman aqueduct running all the way through the centre of the city. It is clear that this town is built on history!
Take Excellent Sightseeing Tours to Such Places as Ephesus and Sirince
For excellent sightseeing tours, it is well recommended to visit the little town of Sirince that is located around 8 kilometres ‘over’ Selçuk. We say ‘over ‘ because it is up in the mountains and the views to be seen on the journey there, is worth the trip alone.
Don’t be surprised to see more Storks here than most other places in the Turkey. Selçuk has become a favourite with storks as a nesting place. They have taken residence on the disused minaret of a mosque in ruins, on the one remaining column if the Artemision and the pillars of the Roman aqueduct during the months from April to September.
