Car Rental for the day?

by venice2009


We will be in Kusadasi in July and we would like to see Epheus and the Virgin Mary House. Is it possible to go by Dolmus to both? If we travel by dolmus to Epheus, and then from Ephus we take a Dolmus to Selcuk. Can we then take a taxi to the Virgin Mary House? Where would we catch a taxi? Do we have to ask the taxi to wait or will can we find another one to take us back to the dolums stop to get back to kusadasi. How much should the taxi cost to get from Selcuk to the Virgin Mary House and back again?
Should we just rent a car in Kusadasi and drive to Epheus and then on to the Virgin Mary house in Selcuk? Are the roads easy to navigate? Is the parking easy to access and how much does it cost to park? I would prefer to drive myself, and if it is EASY to get around, then I wouldn't mind doing that. Is there a car rental place near the port where cruise ships dock?

Thanks ahead of time for all the answers.

Hire a car.
I drove over 2k kilometres in Turkey 2007. The roads are very good and signposted well. Parking is not a big problem unless you are in the larger towns and cities, plenty of car parks and usually free or very cheap.

Two things to look out for whilst driving, first, if you are in the mountain region, look out for a stone in the middle of the road, this could mean that round the next corner there could be a road blockage of some sort. Second, while driving in the rural areas at night, look out for farm traffic, it will be moving slow and probably won’t have any lights and there will be a good chance that the trailer being towed will be full of farm workers returning home.

The downside to hiring a car in Turkey is that it is expensive, they don’t come cheap, but the freedom it gives you is worth it.

If you want to go to Ephesus, do it early in the morning to avoid the midday sun, you could then drive to Pamukkale and have a night there before returning back to your resort.

Enjoy your holiday.

I was in the area abouit a month ago. All the sights you mentioned are well signposted and easily reached. A small tip for Ephesus : by-pass the main entrance and go to the car park at the upper entrance (follow the signs to Virgin mary House). The car partk there is free while the main one costs 5 TL.
I rented my car in Izmir, but I seem to remember there were quite a number of car rental agencies on the main road along the sea side/port in Kusadasi.

We also vote for the car rental option. Driving around Turkey is easy. We did it for a month last summer. The tip about the parking lot at Ephesus is a good one. Someone will probably offer you a free shuttlebus to get back to the lot from the other end. Don't take it - it will probably stop at a carpet store on the way that you don't want to visit.

In addition to Ephesus and the Virgin Mary House, also visit the museum in Selcuk, which is small but has a high quality collection. Feel free to visit our Ephesus and Selcuk pages for details.

Mmmmmmm loads of lovely food

by whitecliff62 about SHERWOODS

To go all the way to Turkey and see a restaurant with the same name as mine (Sherwood) is really spooky, so in we went and we just knew this resaurant would be as good as the name Ha Ha and we was'nt dissapointed. The service the food and the price was perfect from the moment we sat down. Before our first course they give every customer a special bread which is baked in a charcoal oven, this comes to your table looking rather like an inflated rugby ball and is served with garlic butter,this bread alone would have done me for the evening. Anyway we had calamari (fried squid) to start which was cooked beutifully and then it was turkish meat balls. Because our family name is sherwood we signed the restaurant bill and they pinned this up on the wall. So if you ever visit this fantastic restaurant please let me know if its still there. It has to be the bread and garlic butter.Its got a nutty flavour that i have never tasted before.

"A Street in Kusadasi"

A good joke about Kusadasi

A historical true story about Okuz Mehmet Pasha.

Okuz Mehmet Pasha was Grand Vezier of the Ottoman Empire between the years 1616-19. Okuz (pronounsation:Oekuez) means in Turkish Oxe. He was a good man but it was very hard to explain something to him. For that reason his classmates called him Oxe. One day while he was on the field at war and discussing about the situation with his diwan the court, an oxe looked inside the tent and said "muuuu" Every Pashas, Veziers, Beys, all laughted. Mehmet pasha was not upset.He just laughted and said. "A friend of mine came to ask me what I was doing in the middle of Donkeys.

He builded a caravansarai at the port of Kusadasi for all kinds of goods, animals and humans. Today the Caravansarai is a luxus international hote
