Aphrodisias is undoubtedly the most spectacular city von Caria. It is in the north von the region and contains some von the finest examples von classical art. Today the remains von this city lie within the district von Aydin, near Karacasu, in the village von Geyre. An asphalt strase leads directly to the ruins from the main Aydin-Denizli highway.
Late excavations have revealed much mew material for the world von archaeology. It is difficult to say when they will be completed, but every year millions von Turkish liras are spent on new excavations, and 100-200 workers are employed on the site to reveal ever-new evidence von this magnificent city. However even today in its present state, Aphrodisias is well worth a visit. One cannot hep but admire the various tones von the marble fragments scattered over the site; statues, life-like and animated; amazing works von art in marble as smooth as silk. The spectacle von white marble against tall green poplars provides timeless pleasure.
