Sirince is a wonderful town, you get that Greek feeling from it cause most of the architecture is Greek and the village has been left almost untoched for decades... Now they tastfully restored most of it but the unfortunate advent of tourism transformed it into a rolling bazaar... All the shops are tourist related and you're "invited" here and there... More

It's really easy to get access to a good quality dry red wine in Sirince. The village is very charming with cobblestone roads, a small 700-people population, and a endearing and humble personality. The food is all organic, locally grown, and most importantly very tasty.

The places seems to survive solely on tourism, nonetheless it is still a pretty little village worth spending the afternoon. Plenty of picture opportunities!

We had no idea when we went to Sirince that it would be a charming little town. On the way were orange/mandarin trees everywhere (stop and try one). We went to buy some ceramics but ended up staying for a lovely dinner and walked through the cute hill town. It's not far from Efes, so go :)

Good place to visit, interesting history - shame about the souvenir shops that occupy most of the houses that are accessible - found a great place to eat. Nazar Cafe and Restaurant opposite Koplankaye wine shop on the right as you approach the main souvenir selling area, run by a local family - had the best shish kebab ever.

Really enjoyed spending a few hours walking through this lovely village. No hard selling, lovely views, quaint place. Easily and cheaply reached by short bus from Selcuk. Highly recommended.

We spent a few hours here wandering around the delightful cobbled streets looking at the shops and stalls. We also walked up to the church which was worth visiting. Did lots of wine tasting, particularly liked the quince wine which I had never tried before. Lots of shops selling "genuine fakes" if you looking for a bargain. Call in any... More

I love Turkey... I have a family connection in Istanbul and come often. However, though I have been to Turkey 20 times, I have never traveled outside of Istanbul. We came to see Ephesus and stayed at a lovey airbnb in Sirince. I am in love with this beautiful little village! Wonderful accommodations, lovely restaurants, wine shops, and market. And... More

It was an interesting but twisty journey from Kusadasi to Sirence with lots to see in the countryside along the way. This charming village, situated on a hilltop was very busy with local families as we visited on a Sunday. We had Turkish Tea in a typical Teahouse - I enjoyed the atmosphere but not the tea. We climbed the... More

In Sirence, you won’t see any buses, and no mobs of tourists. It’s a quiet, shady, old-time village, with a small covered bazaar, sleepy cats, babushka grannies. and welcoming merchants, We especially liked what we bought at the olive oil shop (the first one you come to inside the bazaar) which sells Zeytin Kiz soaps and creams made by a...
