Tour Plan

You will be met by your private guide at Kusadasi Port. You will drive Ephesus.

Ephesus is an exceptional testimony to the cultural traditions of the Hellenistic, Roman Imperial, and early Christian periods. Ephesus is an important site for Christianity; being one of the seven churches of revelation. Apostle Paul probably spent two and half years in Ephesus during his third missionary journey. It will take about 2 hours to discover Ephesus ancient city by walking on the marble streets, accompanied by our English-speaking tour guide. The site has two entrances; as it is slightly downhill, it is a better idea to start from the upper gate. On our tour, we will be seeing the Odeon, State Agora, Prytaneion, Memmius Monument, Domatian Temple, Hercules Gate, Curetes Street, Hadrian Temple, Latriens, and the Private Houses (so-called, 'Terrace Houses') Celsus Library, Marble Road, Commercial Agora, Great Theater, and Arcadine (Harbour Road).

Terrace Houses in Ephesus on the Curetes street belonged to prominent people of the city. They are dated back to 1C AD; some were inhabited up to 7C AD. They were luxurious private houses with mosaic floors, fountains, and central heating.

We will carry on with the Ephesus Museum, which consists of six chambers exhibiting collections from the ruins. Especially, the marble statues of the Goddess of Artemis are to be seen; one from the 1st century AD and the other from the 2nd century AD.

Also, we will bring a visit to the Temple of Artemis; which is one of the seven wonders of antiquity. During your visit, you will have a chance to take good photographs of the Church of St. John and the Mosque of Isa Bey from the best angle.
