Trip Planner: Europe / Turkey / Turkish Aegean Coast / Izmir Province / Selcuk / Ephesus Terrace Houses
Discover how affluent Roman citizens lived 2,000 years ago at Ephesus Terrace Houses. These luxurious houses have been restored to such a degree that it seems as if someone is still living there. The upscale residences were mostly two storeys and featured interior central courtyards with ceiling openings. Their interiors showcase detailed floor mosaics, frescoes, carvings, and stonework of fine craftsmanship. You may be able to observe archaeologists working on site while you climb the stairs of the scaffolding to view the homes of all six units from above. The houses that are fully restored to their original appearance can be explored from inside by paying an extra fee.

Visiting the terrace houses will cost you extra for the ticket, but it is well worth it. The houses are beautifully restored, including some of the frescos and mosaics.

I went as part of a cruise shore excursion. Our guide was great and seeing the terrace house ruins with some of their floor mosaics in good conditions and same with the frescoes was really neat. Definitely worth going to it.
A must visit if in the area. Make sure you purchase the ticket to visit the Terrace Houses exhibit. The price for both Ephesus and the terrace house was 160TL each. We spent a total of 30 minutes looking around and taking lots of pictures. The Terrace house are a small glimpse to the past. There are no toilets inside the site, so you need to go before you entering the park. 3btraveler
