Michiel Dekker (The Netherlands):
Beautiful site with a lot of history. Also the site of one of the seven wonders of the world; the Temple of Artemis (eventhough not much remains of this site).
Worth a visit and worthy to be a World Heritage Site.

Christine Gravlin (United States):
This is a wonderful place to visit and experience history. I hope that it will be made permanent site. It needs to be preserved.
