Duration: 4 to 5 hours
Product code: 4745
Overview

A tour to the ancient city of Ephesus is a highlight of any trip to Turkey. The best-preserved ancient city in the Eastern Med and is the most significant Open-Air Museum in Turkey.

Ephesus holds more than 30 buildings and structures linked together by streets that still have the marks of ancient chariot wheels.

Great Theatre: St Paul preached against the Pagans and the Gladiators and once engaged in battle. Initially holding approximately 25,000 people, this theatre was initially built in the Hellenistic period and was renovated by a number of Roman emperors. Designed for theatrical performances and then later alterations allowed gladiatorial contests to be held here.

The Library of Celsus has been remarkably restored and probably the most photographed place in Ephesus. Also, you might see the Odeon Temple, Fountain of Trajan, Temple of Hadrian, Stream baths of scholastic, Marble road, Agora and Temple of Domitian.

After lunch in a local Turkish restaurant, you will continue to the House of Virgin Mary where Mary was brought to Ephesus by the apostle John after the resurrection of Christ and lived out her final days here. The church was built on the foundations of that house, and its authenticity has been confirmed by Pope lV and Pope John Poul ll. Many visitors on a guided Ephesus tour describe this as an uplifting or Spiritual Experience.

The final place you will visit is the Temple of Artemis, one of the seven wonders of the ancient world. Ephesus’ Temple of Artemis was built in honour to the goddess of the hunt, and only the foundation and one column remain of this temple which once measured 425 feet long.

My daughter (11) and I had the pleasure of touring Ephesus and the Artemis temple this morning with a great guide. The whole experience was professional, relaxed and interesting. The guide had a fantastic knowledge of both places and navigated us around the crowds. His ability to convey information to myself and young daughter made sure we both enjoyed the historical side of Ephesus. I’d highly recommend
