Curetes Street, Selcuk

4.8
Imagine how daily life went on in the Antiquity at Curetes Street. Once lined with ancient homes and businesses--now turned into ruins--the wide marble road winds its way down the hill stretching from the upper Hercules Gate to the library. Start at the upper gate and stroll down soaking in the panoramic views across the town along the way. Once down, you can get a taxi or a donkey ride back up. Remember to bring a hat and a bottle of water with you--it can get quite hot in the summer. Make Curetes Street part of your personalized Selcuk itinerary using our Selcuk attractions planning tool .

  • Along this long road you have the sensation of making a leap into the past and entering history. Magnificent as all the Greco-Roman ruins

  • Kourites Street is one of the three main avenues of Ephesus. The street of Kourites is the main road that descends to the library of Kelsou. If you start your visit from the east entrance of the archaeological site, you meet it first and in the slightly downhill route you face in the background the imposing library, before you turn right to the marble street that takes you to the ancient theatre. Kourites were priests responsible for the organization of feasts in honor of Artemis and for the preservation of the sacred flame that burned in the city hall.
