Arcadian Way, Selcuk

4.7
Once the center of all the commerce in the city, Arcadian Way links almost all the tourist sites in Ephesus. The marble road is lined with colonnades-- remnants of Roman shops and galleries. Today, much of the road is closed off for visitors, but you can get encompassing views of it from the top of the Great Theatre, which is also a great spot to take photos from. Look at the marble blocks for the wheel marks left by chariots. Using our custom trip planner, Selcuk attractions like Arcadian Way can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • Arkadiani was the highway that led from the port to the ancient theatre of Ephesus. I say he was driving because the port has now been lost from the alluses of the river Kaàstrou, while the beach was removed about 5 km! However, even so, the Arkadiani street with a length of 530 marble measures is extremely impressive. Try to imagine how the visitor would feel when arriving at the port he was taking this road to enter the city of Ephesus. Then, when everything was sparkling, the mosaics on the side of the road and the colonnade stood in their splendor, while the thousands of the colourful crowd of residents and merchants diving the way of the harbour, facing the other End the glittering ancient theatre pulsing with the cries of 30000 spectators! Yes, that's right. Well, that's how I felt the first time I stood and saw her.
