Ephesus Day Tour

Maximise your precious time in the Ephesus area with this small group day tour which takes you to visit all of the main highlights in the area at a comfortable pace.

Description

We pick you up from your hotel, then your Ephesus Day Tour starts with a visit to the ancient city of Ephesus, the former capital of Asia Minor, and one of the best preserved ruins sites in the world. As you walk the streets of Ephesus you will be enthralled by stories of the people who lived here. You’ll also be following in the footsteps of some of history’s most prominent characters, including Alexander the Great, Cleopatra, St Paul, St John and more.

Our next stop is the House of the Virgin Mary, nestled in a forest on top of a hill overlooking Ephesus. This is the place where it is believed she was taken by St John to spend her last days, and was only discovered following the visions of a bedridden German nun who described its location to an author who then published her visions.

After stopping for a lunch break where you will have a chance to sample some tasty local cuisine, we will continue on to visit the charming former Greek village of Sirince, which is famous for its fruit wines and olive oil products. Our visit will include a sampling of some of the wines and free time to wander the cobblestone streets.

On our way back to Kusadasi we will stop to visit the site of one of the seven wonders of the ancient world, the Temple of Artemis, built in dedication to the Goddess Artemis (Diana). Although only the foundations and one column remain today, it is easy to imagine it in its former glory.

Your Ephesus day tour concludes when you are dropped back to your hotel.
