Description

Travel back in time to the glory days of the Roman Empire as you discover the ruins of the most complete Classical city on earth. Explore Ephesus, the Terrace Houses, the Ephesus Archaeological Museum, and the House of the Virgin Mary all in one well-planed day.

After your hassle-free hotel pick-up, it's just an hour-long drive through the Turkish countryside to the city of Ephesus. As you wander among the impressive ruins, your guide's insight paints a vivid picture of Ephesian daily life. Gaze upon the grand facade of the Library of Celsus, as well as the marble pillars of the Temple of Artemis, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. To get a glimpse into how the city's upper crust lived, take a trip up the hill to the Terraced Houses, home to the Ephesian elite and many superbly preserved 2nd-century frescoes.

Get back on the road for a quick ride to your next stop, the Ephesus Archaeological Museum. You can peruse a wealth of artefacts from excavations of sites like the Basilica of St. John, believed to be the burial place of John the Apostle. Check out finds from the Belevi Mausoleum, known for holding the grandiose tomb of Greek king Antiochus II Theos.

Finally, head up Mt. Koressos to pay a visit to the House of Virgin Mary, a destination for both Catholic and Muslim pilgrims. Learn all about this modest chapel, where Mary is believed to have spent her final years, before catching your ride back to Izmir.
