Time-Lapse Tuesday: Turkey's Library of Celsus

June 16, 2015 G Adventures

It’s Tuesday, so once again it’s “time” to “lapse” it up! (See what we did there?). Each week, we share a new way of looking at this big blue planet of ours. While a photo does a great job of capturing what we see with our own eyes, a time-lapse reveals just how little the eye can see.

Situated just a few kilometers outside of Selçuk in Turkey, the ancient city of Ephesus presents the traveller with a view into how life was in the 10th century. A labour of love by a son to his Roman senator father, the Library of Celsus held not only thousands of scrolls, but a mausoleum to house this popular figure after his passing.

Getting There

G Adventures runs a number of departures in Turkey encompassing a wide range of departure dates and activities to cater for different tastes. We’re thrilled at the prospect of showing you this big blue planet of ours — check out our small group trips here.
