Full description
Ephesus is a city created by the Ionians in the 11th-Century BC and later expanded by the Romans. Now considered one of the grandest reconstructed sites in the ancient world, the region also hosted the likes of Cleopatra, Mark Antony, the Virgin Mary and John the Apostle. After a pick up from Kusadasi port or your city hotel, you will be driven to the Ephesus region to start your tour. Your first stop will be the Temple of Artemis, considered one of the 7 Wonders of the Ancient World. Next you will explore the old Greco-Roman city of Ephesus. See the magnificent Magnesia Gate and begin a slow, downhill walk into the ruins of the former Roman provincial capital. Your route will take you past the Temple of Hadrian, the Fountain of Trajan, the Great Theater and the spectacular Celsus Library, one of the best-preserved buildings among the ruins. Visit the Odeon, Bouleterion, Temple of Hadrian, Serapis and Domitian. Continue to the Great Theater, the Double Church and Arcadian Way. Walk along Marble Street and get fantastic views, whichever way you look. Keep your eyes and ears open for gladiators! By the end of the tour, some of you may feel like a true Greek, and some like an Ancient Roman… Our private excursions on V.I.P standards are cheaper than cruise company's excursion rates which are designed for the big crowded groups.

Olcay heeft ons een ontzettend leuke dag bezorgd. Ze is erg vriendelijk en behulpzaam, spreekt perfect Nederlands met een charmante Vlaamse tongval en is zeer goed geïnformeerd en weet enthousiast te vertellen. We hebben de ruïnes van Efesus, de basiliek van Johannes en het huis van Maria bezocht, waarna we nog heerlijk geluncht hebben een klein restaurant dat perfect gelegen was. Een absolute aanrader.
