Aphrodisias is a stunning ruin of an ancient Greek city in Caria. The site is almost on the same scale as Ephesus, in both size and historical significance but hardly attracts the same crowds. It is quite a trek to get there but it is worthwhile. There is a splendidly preserved theatre, stadium and the remains of the Temple of Aphrodite, the main figure of worship in the city. The museum contains a great selection of marble Roman statues in very good condition and plans are in place to excavate and display even more, so go now before the crowds really begin to descend on the place.
Its site is located near the modern village of Geyre, Turkey, about 230 km south-east of İzmir and about 100 km inland from the coast.
