Finally we will visit the Terrace Houses, containing handsome frescoes from the 2nd century CE, which extend up the hill. They once housed the wealthier and more prominent families of the city, who lavished the interiors with superbly preserved frescoes and mosaics. The decor and furnishings of the houses have provided some interesting informations about the life style of Ephesian elite during the Roman and early Byzantine periods.
Inevitably, the houses have been compared with smilar buildings found in the parts of the Roman Empire, particularly with the1C villas of Pompeii and Herculaneum. The consensus is that the Ephesians houses are in no way inferior to these.After Ephesus Terrace Houses ,We will visit the Ephesus museum, one of the best regional museums in Turkey, houses a large collection of objects found at Ephesus in the surrounding countryside.
