Getting around and possible dangers

by Speedie2 Online Now Feb 4, 2007 at 5:35 AM

I am planing to visit Ephesus in July when I am on a cruise. I have some mobility problems with uneven paths, no handrails, long uphill slopes. Can anyone tell me what the terrain is like and what sort of provisions, if any there are for those less mobile. Is it still possible to visit do you think?

Many thanks for any help you can give.

    - there IS uneven paths, stones all over.
    - there is NO handrails
    - there IS a long uphill slope

    BUT if you start from the entrance on the top you will only have DOWN hill :)
    Do arrange for transportation to pick you up from the bottom entrance (main)

    I would say that if you have a stock/crutches (spelling?) and maybe someone to lean on you will be fine.
    Do remember it can be HOT (I survived fine on a very very hot august day).
    You can buy water inside (only near the library) so do bring atleast a 1 litre bottle per person (or more).

    If you havent already, do take a vewi on all the photos taken on Ephesus here at vt Ephesus Travel Guide

    This have an opening photo taken ca 1/3 down the hilliest place, further up it is not so flat.
