Aphrodisias: the Museum

July 8, 2011

The Museum at Aphrodisias is every bit as wonderful as the site itself. Particularly nice are the reliefs from the Sebasteion (so nice not to have to go to Boston, Berlin, or London to see the rest of a site!).

Easily the best place I visited in Turkey this summer, Aphrodisias is sprawling and full of great sights (even before you get to its excellent museum).
