Your tour starts through the magnificent Magnesian Gate, then you'll discover the huge Forum, the impressive Odeon, the two-tiered Library of Celsus, the excellently engineered Thermal Baths of Scolastika and the huge Great Theatre which could seat a staggering 24000 people. Ephesus is about 10 miles from Kusadasi, just before the town of Selcuk, and is best reached via a ship excursion.
