Full description
Discover an historical gem of the eastern Mediterranean on a full-day tour of Ephesus from Istanbul, with round-trip same day flights included.

Following a pick-up from your city center hotel at 4:00 AM - 4:30 AM, transfer to the airport for your reserved flight to Izmir. Upon arrival in Izmir, it’s a short 1-hour drive to the ruins of Ephesus, located near the modern day town of Selçuk. Start your journey back in time to the days of the Greek, Roman, and Byzantine civilizations.

See sights such as the Trajan Fountains, Temples of Domition and Hadrian, and Scolastica Baths. One of the highlights is the stunning façade of the Celcus Library, once capable of holding up to 12,000 scrolls in the niches of its walls.

You will also see the last remaining column of the Temple of Artemis, and the last house where the Virgin Mary was said to have lived. Located on Nightingale Mountain, experience the serenity of a sacred site of pilgrimage for Christians and Muslims alike.

At 5:15 PM, transfer back to Izmir Airport for your flight to İstanbul. A transfer will be waiting to take you back to your hotel on arrival.
