Sightseeing from Sirince

We will be spending 3 nights, 4 days in Sirince (near Ephesus) in Sept. Are there recommendations on where to visit, besides Ephesus? I read about a village called Tire. Has anyone been there?

Hi MIYA,

Here is the list that you may visit:
St John Church
Isa bey mosque
7 Sleeepers cave
Artemission (7 wonders of the world)
Virgin Mary's house
Claros
Prienne
Miletus
Didyma
Izmir Kemer alti Market
Izmir Roman Bath

I think these places are enough for your this trip in Selcuk

Have a nice trip in Turkey

You'll love Sirince and its environs. In addition to the great suggestions from Sinan, you should definitely spend an hour or two at the Ephesus Museum at the edge of town.

Speaking of the Isa Bey mosque, I found it to be one of my favorites in all of Turkey. Very old, very subtle, and the courtyard is lined with Ottoman and Seljuk headstones. It's a great contrast to the grand mosques of Istanbul and elsewhere (and a few hundred years older).

If you're feeling real ambitious, and have a car, Pamukkale can be done in a long day trip.

Regards, Bruce

Thanks for your suggestions-very useful. We'll be staying at the Nisanyan Evleri, at one of the houses.
