Full description

Starting and ending in Kusadasi Port, step back in time to ancient Ephesus on this private guided tour and explore historic sights including Hercules Gate, Marble Road, and Ephesus Museum. Visit the House of the Virgin Mary, the Temple of Artemis, and more.

Meet your guide at the port, then drive toward your first stop, the House of Virgin Mary. Explore and learn about the house (church) for approximately 45 minutes before taking a 5-minute drive to Ephesus.

Take about 2 hours to discover Ephesus by walking on the marble streets, accompanied by your tour guide.

Ephesus is an exceptional testimony to the cultural traditions of the Hellenistic, Roman Imperial, and early Christian periods, and it is also an important site for Christianity as one of the seven churches of revelation.

See the Odeon, State Agora, prytaneion, Memmius Monument, Domitian Temple, Hercules Gate, Curetes Street, Temple of Hadrian, latrines, terrace houses, Library of Celsus, Marble Road, Commercial Agora, Great Theater, and Arcadine (Harbor Road).

Carry on to Ephesus Museum, which consists of six chambers exhibiting collections from the ruins. Marvel at the marble statues of Goddess of Artemis, one from 1st century A.D. and the other from the 2nd century A.D.

Before returning to Kusadasi Port, visit the Temple of Artemis, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. Shoot photos of the Church of St. John and Mosque of Isa Bey from the best angles.
