What other sites are near Ephesus?

#1
I really want to visit Ephesus during my vacation in Turkey; however, I would also like to see Istanbul and Izmir? Is Istanbul really far from Izmir, because it appears that way on a map? Furthermore, are there many other interesting historical sites surrounding Ephesus?

A good 11 or 12 hours by bus but if you have the budget get an internal flight from Izmir - it costs around 99YTL currently details here www.thy.com.tr

Only takes 55 minutes for the flight!

I f you visit Efes, be sure to take plenty of film with you its totally awesome. Especially when you think that at the time it was built, we in the UK were still livng in caves and the like. Enjoy!!! :)
