Overview

Our 3-day private tour of Ephesus and Pamukkale from Izmir starts with our representatives picking you up from the Izmir ADB Airport or Izmir Hotels.

After travelling to Kusadasi in our luxurious vehicles, you will have the chance to explore Kusadasi and rest for your first day.

On the second day, we start our journey early and head to Hierapolis and Pamukkale. Pamukkale is the centre of the natural thermal spring waters with its healing properties. Due to its chemical properties of the water, with pure white coloured travertines and stepped water terraces been created on the mountain slope. It resemblances a pile of white cotton that is why it is called 'Cotton Castle' of in the Turkish language.

Visit Pamukkale and the old city of Hierapolis which has the most significant Nekropol with 1200 gravestones in Anatolia. The sacred pool also is the highlight of the site — their shallow thermal waters ripples over an unusual scattering of ancient Roman ruins that lie beneath.

After the tour of Pamukkale, you return your hotel in Kusadasi.

The next and final day includes a tour of The House Of Virgin Mary, Ephesus and The Ancient Temple Of Artemis. On this day you will visit o the Shrine of Virgin Mary and the House where Mary spent her last days, arriving here with Saint John after the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. Tour the tiny house, add an 'intention' (wish) on the sacred wall collect some Holy Water from the fountain or light some candles for your loved ones.

As you arrive in Ephesus, you will first see the Magnesia Gate, a marvellous example of ancient architecture that once stood tall at the city entrance. 

Start to walk down into the city’s ruins. The route will take you past the Odeon, Celsus Library, the Temple of Hadrian, the Fountain of Trajan and the Great Theater. While on this route you get to see the exclusive area of the Terrace Houses, with remains of the homes of the wealthy people of the time. 

The theatre of Ephesus is one of the city’s best-preserved monuments and is still in use today for the local spring festival. It once had seating space for 24,000 people and believed to be the site where St. Paul preached to the Ephesians.

After the tour of Ephesus, we drop you off at the arranged address whether its a hotel in Izmir, Kusadasi or Izmir ADB Airport.
