Full description
Your tour will begin as you are picked up from your accommodation between 8:30AM and 9:00AM in the morning. From there your first stop will be to the House of Virgin Mary, which is speculated to be the place where Mary spent her final days. The site was officially declared a shrine of the Roman Catholic Church in 1986, and has since become a popular place of pilgrimage. Your tour will then proceed to Ephesus.

Ephesus is an exceptional testimony to the cultural traditions of the Hellenistic, Roman Imperial, and early Christian periods. It is an important site for Christianity; being one of the seven Churches of Revelation. Over the space of two hours you will explore the city by walking on the marble streets accompanied by an English-speaking tour guide.

Throughout your tour you will see Odeon, State Agora, Prytaneion, Memmius Monument, Domatian Temple, Hercules Gate, Curetes Street, Hadrian Temple, and Latriens. Following the Terrace Houses you will carry on with some exploration of the Celsus Library, Marble Road, Commercial Agora, Great Theather, and Arcadiane. Following lunch you will carry on with a visit to the Temple of Artemis; which is one of the "Seven Wonders of Antiquity".

Finally, you will visit Sirince, which is an old village situated on the hills of Selcuk 7 kilometers from Ephesus. The village is popular for beautiful traditional houses and fruit-flavored wine production, and you will have a free time there for some wine tasting if you wish. Your tour will later conclude at around 4:30PM, at which point you will be transferred back to your hotel.
