Ephesus is one of the best-preserved archaeological sites from the Classical era. This excursion explores the best of this UNESCO World Heritage Site, including the Celsus Library and the Great Theatre. You'll also discover the site of the Temple of Artemis and a local ceramic workshop.
Let your guide transport you back in time, learning about the living past of Ephesus. Admire the Celsus Library, built with double walls to protect its scrolls from the heat. Peek into houses still decorated with frescoes, and nose around the public baths, brothel and shops. Walk down Marble Street towards the Great Theatre. Dug into a hillside, this spectacular 24,000-seater once rang with the cries of gladiators and sermons of St Paul.
After lunch, it's on to the archaeological site where the Temple of Artemis once stood – one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. Finally, a visit to a local ceramics factory ends the day.
