The hills around Kusadasi are home to two of Turkey's most popular historical sites – the ancient city of Ephesus and the House of the Virgin Mary. On this small group tour, you'll be whisked through centuries of history at Ephesus, see one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World and visit a shrine on Mount Koressos all in one morning.
Travel into the sun-soaked hills all the way to the House of the Virgin Mary before heading to the ancient city of Ephesus, where a journey through history awaits. Your guide will lead you into and around the sprawling archaeological site and point out its highlights while regaling you with fascinating historic tales.
You'll stroll down marble-paved streets, where mosaics and frescoes still decorate the walls of ancient Roman houses. Gaze up at the Temple of Hadrian, and you'll be blown away by the Library of Celsus. The grand finale of the tour comes at the ancient theatre, where 25,000 spectators would watch brutal gladiator clashes and performances.
