Full description
Begin the day with a pick-up from your Kusadasi hotel or harbor and enjoy a comfortable ride to the ancient city of Ephesus. Once in Ephesus, embark on a full-day tour of this fascinating city, beginning at the upper gate, and slowly making your way down to the lower gate (approximately 2 kilometers), stopping to see the incredible ruins along the way. Pass by the incredible Library of Celsus, the red granite pillars of the Odeon theatre, the Temple of Hadrian, the Temple of Artemis, as well as the Temple of Domitian, one of the largest temples of the ancient city. Continue the tour to the ancient city's Theatre, believed to be the largest outdoor theater in the ancient world, the Tomb/Fountain of Pollio, erected in 97 A.D., as well as two of the city's agoras. End the incredible tour with a visit to the House of the Virgin Mary, a Catholic and Muslim shrine located on Mt. Koressos in the vicinity of Ephesus. Discovered in the 19th century due to the reported visions of Blessed Anne Catherine Emmerich, a Roman Catholic nun and visionary, the house has since become a site of many pilgrimages.
