14 Mosaic Floor at Scholastica Baths in Ephesus, Turkey

As you survey the Scholastica Baths ruins, it is hard to picture the superb interior at the height of glory befitting the city’s exalted status. But surely you have seen movies of ancient Rome featuring opulent bathhouses. White marble everywhere, delicate friezes along ceilings decorated with frescos, lifelike statues and intricate mosaic floors. Similar ornate décor filled three levels of Scholastica Baths. If you want to see more intricate mosaic flooring, visit the Terraces Houses directly across from Scholastica Baths. These were the homes of the rich and social elite. The oldest was constructed in the 1st century BC.
