It is very close to Ehpesus, or Efes, however FEW people ever stop and see this Wonder.

The only other of the Seven Wonders of the World that can bee seen is the Great Pyramid of Cheops in Egypt... Hence the hint like a pyramid.
The other Wonders are all destroyed.

In ancient times it looked better than the one and a half columns still standing


By the way, the first hint photo is of Nicolle sitting on a communal toilet in Ephuses. The city was built by the ancient Greeks and then taken over by the Romans. As you know the Romans invented the cistern, and the dunny, but really made big when they invented the Multi-Holer. Just imagine have your morning constitutional with all your mates!
