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.

What people are saying about Marmaris

Overall rating

3.7 / 5

based on 14 reviews

Was very interesting. Unfortunately only in English, although booked in German. But you were informed beforehand via WhatsApp. (Had booked 3 more tours, it was the same, but you didn't get any information beforehand.) The lunch was simple but delicious. The cats and other front door (ducks, chickens etc.) were quite annoying when eating. The walk to the waterfall was a bit difficult. (not a good hiking trail) We weren't at the beekeepers. The carpet sales show was very well done. There was also a return transfer to the hotel, although it was not specified when booking.

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
