    Default Which are the best Graeco-Roman-Ionian ruins.

    I am planning to visit Turkey next year,wondering which are the best ruins to visit:
    1. Ephesus
    2. Afrodisias
    3. Priene-miletus-didyma(the temple seems spectacular).

    How would you compare roman ruins in the middle east(say baalbek or palmyra or Apamea ) with the ones in Turkey or Greece?
    Which of these have the most "WOW" factor?

    I'd say Ephesus, because the Library of Celsus is the most intact of the three, visually most beautiful and intellectually most interesting.

    In fact, they are not even the Europeans in strict sense, meaning European as in bearing the responsibility and understanding of European interests. Poland has always been an subordinate country, on one side sucking German dick, on the other side -- Russian one, some kind of "novice" europeans, who are full of inferiority complexes, hysteria and obsessity neuroses. This is also true for all Baltic countries

    I've been to the temple of Jupiter in Baalbek. It is massive. Very cool place, only problem is the journey to get there from Beirut is a nightmare. Traffic and heat utterly exhaust you. Still it is definitely worth it when you get there.

    There are too many places worth to see which left from different civilisations in Turkey. I would suggest you visit here : http://www.kultur.gov.tr/?_dil=2

    (Many statues, ancient ruins were stolen by British and German Archeologists .)

    I am going for Ephesus and Afrodisias. Lycian ruins eem to be interesting(like Xanthos or Termessos), but then I guess I should explore more places like Nemrut Dagi, Cappadocia,Hattusas(hittite kingdom),Mardin(Assyrian) to get a broader picture.

    Baalbek,Palmyra,Bosra(not sure if its Roman) seem to be nicer(for me) ,but given the current situation in Syria its better to give it a miss for now.
