Full description
On this tour, visit the beautiful city of Ephesus, a gem of the Greek, Roman and Byzantine civilizations. Its rich history will take you back in time and you will learn why this city was so important in the past. It is also home to the largest collection of Roman ruins in the eastern Mediterranean. On this tour you will visit all its ancient sites. Visit the Grand Theater, which is believed to be the largest theater in the ancient world with capacity for 44,000 spectators. Also explore the ruins of the famous Temple of Artemis which was once one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. Another interesting sight is the fascinating facade of the Library of Celsus, which has been carefully reconstructed from its original pieces. The library was built by Celsus' son and once held more than 12,000 scrolls. After a delicious lunch of Turkish cuisine, visit the House of the Blessed Virgin.
