Amsterdam docked in Kusadasi, Turkey, for two days during our Grand World Voyage in its last segments. Kusadasi has now turned into a very nice port with much more shops and excursions since the last time I was here, around 5 years ago. People are very nice and helpful, and there are many modes of transportation offered. There are also many ancient sites for shore excursions available.
I went to the ancient city of Ephesus, where we visited the Colosseum (Grand Theater), Celcus Library and the city that was left in ruins but is still beautiful. Shopping here is great, they are well known for selling many leather collections of jackets, bags and shoes. So what are you waiting for? Add Kusadasi, Turkey as your next destination to visit. Great visit! Enjoy the photos!
