Today we left Bodrum and drove to Izmir. On the way we stopped at an olive museum and had lunch at the Degirmen restaurant in Kusadasi, a lovely place with acres and acres of gardens full of animals. We then headed to the ruins of Ephesus, an ancient Greek city on the coast of Ionia. It was built in the 10th century BC on the site of the former Arzawan capital by Attic and Ionian Greek colonists. We finished our day at the beautiful vineyards of Urlice. We ate outdoors on the patio. The weather, food and Urlice family were a delightful combination.
