As in many other cases, this city does not fail because it is dangerous or unpleasant, but because it does not have any relevant tourist attraction itself; it is the closest urban spot to Ephesus though, which deserves a visit and is barely 3 km away. Continue reading “SELÇUK”
- I was there 3 days at the end of December 2005 and 3 more in March 2012.
