Full description
Meet your guide at Kusadasi port. They will be waiting at the pier holding a sign with your name. After half a hour driving, the first site on the program is the House of Virgin Mary. It is believed that she was brought here by St. John and that she spent her last years in this area. You usually spend 45 minutes in this site. After you get all the necessary information from your guide, you will have enough time to explore the site on your own. Afterwards, there is 15 minute drive to Ephesus. You will start your Ephesus visit from the upper site gate. During this 2 hour visit you will have chance to learn about the history of Ephesus and see the highlights of this site: Odeon, Celsus Library, Great Theater and Hercules Gate. You will have plenty of time to walk around and take photos, if some group members want, they can visit the Terrace Houses, houses of rich Ephesians. The guide can give you general information about this area, while the rest of the group have time on their own. After you leave Ephesus, the next stop is the Selcuk town for your lunch break. After tasting authentic local food, you are back on your way to the port. Make a last stop at the Temple of Artemis and spend about 30 minutes here. Your tour finishes at Kusadasi port.
