Description

Take a look back to see the ancient Greco-Roman world come alive in the historic ruins of Ephesus. With hassle-free transportation and the experience of a knowledgeable guide, this tour gives you an introduction to the intriguing secrets of this onetime Aegean metropolis.

After you're whisked away from your hotel, start your journey towards the UNESCO World Heritage site on Turkey's Mediterranean coast. Once the bustling capital of Roman Asia Minor, Ephesus was one of the region's great attractions—a wealthy and important city and the home of the famed Temple of Artemis, one of the wonders of the ancient world.

Even though less than a quarter of the site has been excavated, it is considered the most complete example of a classical Greek metropolis. Listen to insightful stories about the lives of the people who filled the city during bygone centuries as you marvel at the well-preserved ruins and enjoy a delicious lunch in a local restaurant renowned for its authentic Turkish cuisine.

Your tour also visits such major sights as House of the Virgin Mary, where Catholic belief holds that the mother of Jesus spent her last days, and the ruins of the 6th-century Basilica of St. John, built by the Byzantine emperor Justinian I.
