To help you make the most of your visit, here are the top 15 most beautiful cities of the Arab world.

1. Ephesus, Turkey

Ephesus has a reputation stretching back into antiquity. It was the home of the Temple of Artemis, which was one of the seven wonders of the ancient world.

Alexander the Great liberated the city. It even has a Biblical history, as two letters from the Apostle Paul were written to the people there and became official “books” in the Bible. He also spent some time preaching there, which is documented in the book of Acts.

Today, the best part of visiting Ephesus is getting to look at the very well-preserved facade of the Library of Celsus, which is an excellent example of authentic ancient Roman architecture.
