In the city of Ephesus, we have 2 entrances. One lower and the other on higher ground. The high gate is called The Gate of Magnesia. Returning to this gate, the city is inclined towards the low door. For this reason, we chose to start the tours to Ephesus from Izmir through this gate. By this gate you can visit all the important places and go out from the lower door. The visit of the city varies between 1.5 hours to a few hours according to the level of interest of the guests.
