The Ephesus amphitheater was the biggest one on this side of the Aegean sea, as it could accommodate around 25.000 people.
If you're entering the site from the northern entrance it's the first major Ephesus attraction you'll spot and a great photo op. It's construction dates back to ancient Greeks, while it was enlarged during the Romans.
This was my second visit, and this time it was semi closed due to construction and renovation works, but it's still an amazing site.

One of the just a few somehow well-preserved objectives. Impressive by its size, it is the largest in Anatolia and has the capacity of about 24,000-25000 seats. Unfortunately, not very well preserved. It seems there are some rehabilitation works in (slow) progress.

The amphitheater is impressive only if you haven't seen the others. In fact, it has a modest degree of preservation. Unfortunately, the stage has not been preserved in this theater with a capacity of 25 thousand spectators. The theater stage was three stories high, but the last two floors were not preserved. We were in Pamukkale-Hierapolis the day before. The result of many years of work by Italian archaeologists is impressive... In Hierapolis, of course. An amphitheater in French orange. The same is not in favor of Ephesus... However, the large crane inspires hope that the stage will be restored and it will look comparable to the library of Celsus. In the meantime, the game of historical imagination is more needed here. This theater is a landmark place for Christians: there were clashes between them, led by the Apostle Paul and worshippers of the cult of Artemis, whom Christians call pagans. History, as we know, is written by the winners...

It may be the biggest ancient theater in our country. Ephesus Antique Theater, which is the biggest amphitheater of that age, has a capacity of 24 thousand people. The stage of the theater is unfortunately demolished, but the seating areas are fine. It is also a very important place in the name of Christianity because it is where St. Paul's sermons take place. You can hear the songs sung in the lower part from the top parts. You can see the city's road to the harbor right across the street.
