is a charming town that oozes history and character. It has many small restaurants.
The weekly Saturday market in Selcuk is renowned as one of the best in Turkey. It is huge and an absolute must to visit. The town is only 3km from a large, 15km long, quiet sandy beach at Pamucak. This can be  reached easily by car or on the frequent local dolmus (bus). Other places in town worth visiting are the Selçuk  Ephesus museum,  St John's Basilica and Byzantine castle,  the Isa Bey Mosque, Artemis temple and the Virgin Mary's House (recently visited by the Pope!). The star attraction however is Ephesus
, just 2km from Selcuk and can genuinely be considered as one of the wonders of the ancient world.  It was once the second biggest city in the Mediterranean and can only be described  as truly spectacular with its famous library, ampitheatre and stadium.
Selçuk is also within easy reach of the other important archaeological sites at Didyma, Priene and Cesme, with Heirapolis and Aphrodisias only a little further away.

Sirinçe  is nearby,  a pretty and popular restored Greek town in the mountains, only 8km from Selcuk. Ferries to the Greek island Samos
are only 20minutes away by car in Kusadasi. Those seeking the night life should look no further than Kusadasi. There are lots of good restaurants here too.
