The Main street of Roman-era Ephesus leading from the Docks to the Theatre. Adorned with columns on either side and huge stone slabs making up the road. Breath-taking.

What features this road is the marble all over. Long road to the library and then to the theatre. Always crowded even in a sunny days. So don't forget your hat.
