Ephesus,House of Virgin Mary and Basilica of Saint John Tour

You will start your day with a pleasant drive through the countryside to visit the House of Mary .  Mt Pagusa setting that is a shrine to some and a curiosity to others. It is reputedly the home of Mary, the mother of Jesus Christ. She spends her last days in this area .
Archaeological evidence shows that the little house here dates from the 6th century AD but that its foundations are from the 1st century AD. This ties in with the commonly held belief that Mary moved to Anatolia. The basement of the house have been found and restored.
Today you can see two rooms inside the house. Papa has visited the house.




Then drive to see ruins of the city of Ephesus, which dates predominantly from the later Roman period.

The stunning ruins here include the towering façade of the Celsus Library and Hadrian's Temple, as well as the Sacred Way, which was one of the main thoroughfares used by the Ancient Romans.

Continuing from the library to the end of the marble street, you can look up at Ephesus' impressive amphitheater, where St Paul preached to the Ephesians.

You will drive towards town of Seljuk. Here you will visit the ruins of the Basilica of St John.
The Basilica had a cruciform plan with four domes along its longitudinal axis and a pair flanking the central dome to form the arm of the cross.
The tomb of St John was placed under the central dome.

Lunch is recommended at a local restaurant .
