Overview

This tour helps you to take a step back in time. On this excursion, you will visit the Virgin Mary’s House and the ancient city of Ephesus.

After driving for 30 minutes, you arrive at the House of the Virgin Mary, where she has past the last years of her life. This sacred site is an officially declared Roman Catholic shrine and hosted by three Papa visits since 1967.

After the visit, you will take a 10-minute drive to Ephesus, where you will see the Odeon Theatre, Celsus Library, and Hadrian Temple and much more. The Marble Road runs between the Theater, and Celsus Library is part of a sacred walkway.

You will see the Grand Theatre of Ephesus, dating back to the Hellenistic period. It was at this great site that St. Paul preached, as its acoustics remain excellent, the theatre is still in use today.

The Church of Mary dates back to the second century A.D. also known as the "Hall of the Muses”. It was used as an educational and cultural centre, and once that Christianity was adopted as the official religion of Rome, it became a Basilica, the first church that has been dedicated to the Virgin Mary in the world.

A private Ephesus tour costs quite a bit more than a group tour, but there is no way we could have seen as much as we did, and got as much enjoyment out of it, if we hadn't done this private tour. I would definitely recommend it!
