Full description
On this full-day trip you’ll explore Ephesus, one of the 7 Wonders of the Ancient World. The city was the commercial, religious, and social center of antiquity. Ephesus is known as one of the best-preserved archaeological sites in the world, as you’ll soon appreciate as you walk down its marble-paved streets and see mosaics and frescoes still decorating the walls of the ancient Roman houses. Visit the Temple of Hadrian, the baths, and the city's brothel. In particular, you won’t want to miss the Library of Celsus, the most impressive of the structures in Ephesus. The theater held 25,000 citizens, who gathered to watch theatrical performance and gladiator clashes. Today, from the site you’ll enjoy impressive views across the main street that’s lined with marble fountains, temples, and baths. After lunch, continue to the House of the Virgin Mary on Mt. Koressos. Experience the holy spirit of the humble house where the Virgin Mary is said to have spent her last days.

Disorganised

We didn’t end up seeing the House of Virgin Mary. We also spent an hour of the trip in a Ceramic ‘Museum’ and shop selling traditional Turkish products. Neither of these were requested and it felt like we taken there as the tour guide was on some sort of commission. Without these stops we would have had time to see The House of Virgin Mary.

Interesting.

It was very interesting. Unfortunately we have not been able to see the house of the Virgin Mary due to crowds. We went to the museum afterwards
