Sardis was situated in the middle of Hermus valley, at the foot of Mount Tmolus, a steep and lofty spur which formed the citadel. It was about 4 kilometres south of the Hermus. Today, the site is located by the present-day village of Sart, near Salihli in the Manisa province of Turkey, close to the Ankara - İzmir highway. The part of remains including the bath-gymnasium complex, synagogue and Byzantine shops is open to visitors year-round.
