Overview

Ephesus is an uncovered Ancient world from the Roman Imperial period with relics dating as far back as the 10th Century BC. One of Turkey's major sightseeing attractions, this city was once home to 250,000 people.

Your guide will be waiting to welcome you as you disembark your cruise ship at Kusadasi Ege Port.  You'll visit the famous Temple of Artemis one of the 'Seven wonder's of the world' which once drew pilgrims from all over the Mediterranean. A temple dedicated and built to honour Artemis, one of three maiden goddesses of Olympus.

Don't miss the Celsus Libary which is the 3rd largest in the ancient world built to store 12,000 scrolls and house the tomb of Celsus. Visit The Grand Theatre which once could accommodate up to 25,000 people who came to witness demonstrations of a social, political and economic nature and most famously the Gladiator games. Rebuilt several times the theatre still stands and has held concerts for acts such as Elton John and Micheal Jackson. 

The Temple of Hadrian is your next site. More of a monument than a temple, the temple was built around 118 AD and inside displays interesting mythological and religious scenes. Parts of The Temple of Hadrian, located in Ephesus Street, are actually plaster replicas as the genuine artefacts are located inside of the Ephesus museum located nearby.

Enjoy a traditional Turkish lunch before heading to another major attraction, The House of The Virgin Mary.

The apparent final resting place of The Mother Mary. Following the visions and the precise description from a book written by a German nun, a French priest in the 19th century discovered the ruins and after many years of debate convinced others that this place was, in fact, the last resting place of The Virgin Mary.

Today the building is a Catholic shrine and chapel, still used and visited regularly by tourists from around the world. A popular scene here is the Wishing Wall were visitors write a wish upon a piece of cloth and tie it to the wall adorning thousands from others who have been before.

At the end of your tour, your guide will transfer you back to Kusadasi Ege Port in time to board your ship.
