During the approximately 2 ½ hour drive to Aphrodisias from the east of Kusadasi, you'll pass through beautiful countryside, offering a glimpse of the traditional Turkish lifestyle. There will be a short break halfway through for refreshments and to stretch your legs.
Aphrodisias, named after the Greek goddess of Love, Aphrodite, was once a flourishing city with a unique cult image of Aphrodite. The city's marble quarry was extensively exploited during the Hellenistic and Roman periods, and sculptors from Aphrodisias became famous in the Roman world. The city boasted a rich cultural and commercial life, including a developed wool and cotton industry, arts and crafts, schools of philosophy and sculpture, and more.
Key attractions in Aphrodisias include the Tetrapylon, a monumental gate with four groups of four columns, the well-preserved stadium, Odeon, Bishop's Palace, Agora, Baths of Hadrian, Theatre, and Sebastion, which consists of a temple dedicated to Emperor Augustus. The Museum of Aphrodisias displays invaluable monuments found during excavations.
