Work continues at full speed on the ‘Ephesus Ancient Canal Project’, which will bring the Ancient City of Ephesus, one of the important historical values of İzmir, which is on the UNESCO World Heritage List, to make Ephesus Meets The Sea Again after 2,500 years! The ancient city, which is now 5 kilometers away from the sea, will be made to meet the sea again thanks to this project. Within the first phase of the project; The 600-meter-long canal entrance is being reorganized, and a marina is being built.
A 100-meter-wide, 250-meter-long marina is being built in the area that was the beginning of the Gulf of Ephesus, with a 600-meter-long canal that will provide short-term accommodation for boats.
The Ancient Canal Project, which will bring the ancient city of Ephesus together with the sea, comprises 2 stages. The first phase of the project includes the 600-meter-long entrance canal, the breakwater structure, and the marina. In the second phase, the area from the İzmir-Kuşadası highway to the Ephesus Port will be cleaned and reorganized under the historical texture. When the project is completed, it will be possible to travel to Ephesus with private boats again after 2500 years.
