Description

Spend a day exploring the ruins of Ephesus, once the commercial center of the ancient world and now an archeological site and a highlight for any visit to Turkey. See centuries' worth of classical architecture, the famed Temple of Artemis, and the site thought to be the last home of the Virgin Mary.

A pickup from your hotel starts your tour, and an easy ride takes you to the historic city. Ephesus is best known as the site of the ancient temple dedicated to the Greek goddess Artemis, described as one of the great wonders of the ancient world. Around the single column that remains from the historic structure, you can see a wealth of relics from Greek, Roman, Byzantine, and Ottoman times.

As you stroll along the marble streets, you can see the Odeon, the Agora, the Temple of Hadrian, the Monumental Fountains, the Roman Baths, the Library of Celsius, and the Great Amphitheatre. Your tour also visits the House of the Virgin Mary, a pilgrimage site where Catholic belief holds that Mary spent her last days, and the ruins of the 6th-century Basilica of St. John, built by Byzantine emperor Justinian I.

Excellent tour and excellent guide. Highly recommended. The only disadvantage is that the tour incorporates shopping trips which clearly are negotiated with the shops to bring potential customers inside. After 8 hours in the sunshine, no one is interested in buying jewellery or ceramics. These should be removed from the tour. Anyone who wants to buy jewellery and ceramics will do so on their own. No one bought anything on either of these planned trips.
