Selçuk remains a relaxing place to stay. It´s a likable, down-to-earth place, mixing a traditional country feel with a tourist buzz and family-run pensions offering a taste of Turkish hospitality and home cooking (TAT restaurant – Lentil soup, Chicken goulash with potatoes – 60 TRY). It is a gateway to ancient Ephesus, but it has a compact old town with many attractions –Roman/Byzantine aqueduct arches, a lone pillar remaining from the Palace of Artemis (one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World), and the hilltop Byzantine ruins of the Basilica of St John (🎫 50 TRY) and Ayasuluk Fortress. Live music and cold Efes beer (50 TRY / 0,5 l) you can get in Skopje bar.
