Full description
Meet your guide at your Kusadasi hotel or cruise port for a private guided tour of the Ephesus Ruins and the House of the Virgin Mary. Your expedition to the holy places begins with a drive aboard an air-conditioned coach to Ephesus, an ancient city famous for its early Christian roots. Discover the settlements of one of the biggest open-air museums in the whole world which receives over a million visitors each year. See the Ephesus Ancient Ruins, parliament building, ancient municipality, ancient hospital, Temple of Hadrian, Trajan Fountain, Celsus Library and Great Theatre. After this first part of the tour, you will have the opportunity to eat lunch and your guide will recommend the best eating options. Next, experience a place that has hosted pilgrims for centuries - the House of the Virgin Mary. Learn about Mary’s final living moments before she died and discover how Pope Paul VI certified the site in 1967. After this, visit one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, the Temple of Artemis, and other well-maintained ancient temples. At the end of the tour, make your way back to Kusadasi where you will have the chance to stop and see local and traditional Turkish markets. Return to your hotel, cruise port or to Izmir airport.
