It was once located on the northern slopes of the hills Coressus and Pion, and south of the Cayster River, whose silt has subsequently formed a fertile plain, but has also forced the coastline to drift further west. When Ephesus was formed (about 600 BCE), the Temple of Artemis, or Diana, to which the city owed much of its fame and which appears to mark the site of the classical Greek city, it was probably on the coast, one mile east by northeast of Pion (today Panayir Da). A challenging sea route was maintained in Roman times to a harbour west of Pion. Without more ado, let’s dive into the details of the Ephesus tour.
